The Cartographic Creation of New England

Another exhibition that took place years ago but which still has a web presence: The Cartographic Creation of New England. With lots of images of early maps (the collection includes immediate post-discovery woodcuts from the late fifteenth century, and carries on into the twentieth century), this exhibit’s purpose is to chart the creation of “New England” as a spatial concept. (via Plep; this is the first of three links he dug up the other day from the University of Southern Maine’s Osher Map Library).
