Terra Nostra; CCA Conference

Cartography notes the upcoming launch, during the Canadian Cartographic Association’s 2006 conference this month, of Jeffrey Murray’s upcoming history of Canadian cartography, Terra Nostra, 1550-1950: The Stories Behind Canada’s Maps. The book sounds quite interesting. So does the conference — but, though I live only an hour away, I doubt I’ll be able to attend, so I’ll look forward to Paul’s report.

Update, June 21: Press release announcing the book’s launch.
