History of Cartography Project

Continued development of the multi-volume reference work "The History of Cartography" with particular attention to Volume Four on the "European Enlightenment, 1650-1800," Volume Five on "The Nineteenth Century," and Volume Six on the "Twentieth Century."

The award-winning History of Cartography is the only comprehensive and reliable reference work that studies the people, cultures, and societies that have produced and consumed maps from prehistoric times to the present. It provides intellectual access to the complex world of maps for scholars, teachers, students, librarians, and the informed general public. It thus promotes and sustains the culturally sophisticated interpretation of maps as evidentiary source materials. Thoroughly researched by its editors and international contributors, its content is rigorously checked by an experienced editorial team. In addition to publishing in print, as befits a definitive source of information, the University of Chicago Press is producing an online edition to maximize access.
