University of Wisconsin System (Madison, WI 53715-1218)
Matthew H. Edney (Project Director: July 2016 to March 2021)
History of Cartography Project

We request an implementation grant for July 2017-June 2019 through NEH's Humanities Collections and Reference Resources program and Common Good initiative to advance the final two volumes of The History of Cartography, a reference encyclopedia. Work planned includes careful review of the production of Volume 4 by the University of Chicago Press (for publication June 2019) and extensive editorial preparation of Volume 5 (for press submission February 2020). This award-winning series is the only comprehensive and reliable reference work to study the people, cultures, and societies that have produced and used maps from prehistory to the present. It provides intellectual access to the complex world of maps for scholars and the public. It promotes and sustains the humanistic interpretation of maps as evidentiary source materials. Experienced editors, contributors, and staff thoroughly research and rigorously check its content. The Press publishes print, e-book, and free online editions.
