Projection:
Scale:
Access: CD-ROM [194]
Description:
Although there are catalogues of individual maps in The British Library, up to now there has been no listing of maps in the Library's collection of atlases. This massive study describes the map contents of over 3,000 pre-1800 atlases, including general works of geography, history, and travel which contain nine or more maps. English material predominates, but the Library's holdings of Dutch, French and German atlases are substantial and there are also many atlases from other European countries, as well as those of Arabic, Persian and Oriental origin. Details of publication, provenance, colour and binding are provided, together with an itemisation of each map, cross references where applicable and scholarly source material. This is a two volume set with a CD-ROM index, not available separately.
