University of Wisconsin, Madison (Madison, WI 53715-1218)
Matthew H. Edney (Project Director: July 2018 to present)
History of Cartography Project

Continued development of the multi-volume reference work, The History of Cartography, leading to publication of Volume Four on the European Enlightenment, 1650-1800, and completion of research, editing, fact-checking, and procurement of illustrations for Volume Five on The Nineteenth Century.

We request an implementation grant for July 2019–June 2021 to advance the final volume of a major reference series, The History of Cartography, and to finalize its penultimate volume. Work planned includes research and extensive preparation of Vol. 5 (for press submission August 2021) and outreach to scholars and the public with Vol. 4’s publication in late 2019. This award-winning series is the only comprehensive and reliable resource 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 sources. Experienced editors, contributors, and staff thoroughly research and rigorously check its content. The Press is responsible for publishing and distributing the volumes, making them available to a broad audience in print, e-book, and eventually free online editions.
