More Reviews of Peter Barber’s Map Book

The Map Book, edited by Peter Barber, continues to get attention. It was reviewed by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review last month: “Barber’s chronological format is easy to browse, fascinating when read in sequence. Each righthand page is a full-color reproduction, usually one portion of a larger map. The left page explains the map’s history and significance, headed by a two-line synopsis, and down the left margin its year and a smaller color illustration, usually the full view of the map on a mosaic floor, a shield cover, a tapestry presented to Elizabeth I.” Via GeoCarta.

It also got a brief mention in TrulyObscure last week.

I’ve mentioned Barber’s book in previous link roundups here and here.
