5 BARBER, PETER. London: A History In Maps.
British Library, London: 2012. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Over the past two thousand years London has developed from a small town, fitting snugly within its walls, into one of the world's largest and most dynamic cities. This beautifully illustrated book charts that growth and the city's transformation through hundreds of maps culled from the collection of the British Library's Map Library. Utilitarian maps show the city as it is and serve to elucidate its inner workings, while carefully wrought plans show the city as it was envisioned—whether those plans were executed or not. The maps and panoramas collected here are more than topographical records. They all convey unique insight into the concerns, assumptions, ambitions, and prejudices of Londoners at the time the maps were created. In addition to offering readers a tour of London past and present, this book reveals the inside story of the creation, growth, and change of one of the world's greatest cities. Peter Barber is head of map collections at the British Library.. "[E]ndlessly absorbing. . . . [A] skillful balance between the city's shape-shifting actuality and the various fantasies, cherished by everybody from Christopher Wren to the Luftwaffe, of what the place, with a few crucial tweaks, might become." -- Times Literary Supplement "With each page, we witness London's horizontal and vertical expansion. The collected work of London's cartographers shows urban mass as a living entity, pushing forever outward. In its entirety, Mr. Barber's book captures this energy and sense of organic growth. . . . This is a coffee table book that deserves to be read and studied. . . . [A] beautiful and engaging book." --Darren Richard Carlaw, New York Journal of Books "Highly recommended." -- W. S. Rodner, Tidewater Community College, Choice

10 HARVEY, P. D. A. Medieval Maps Of The Holy Land.
British Library, London:2012. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
This study examines the eight known medieval regional maps of the Holy Land. Interesting, picturesque, and often colorful, these maps provide great insight into how the Holy Land was perceived by Western Europe in the age of the Crusades. Many of the surviving copies and fragments from the period are reproduced here for the first time, including three large maps that are among medieval Europe's finest cartographic monuments. In the course of this study P. D. A. Harvey, a leading historian of medieval maps, undertook detailed detective work that revealed many new discoveries, such as two maps hidden behind newer renditions, a map that was transformed into an erotic fantasy by a nineteenth-century forger, and information about the origin of a mysterious grid pattern on some of the maps. The research and illustrations presented in Medieval Maps of the Holy Land constitute an important contribution to the studies of medieval culture, early mapping, and crusading Europe. "[C]ogently organized, richly illustrated . . . and pithily written, offering nothing less than a journey to the centre of the earth, as it was once conceived." --Anthony Bale, Times Literary Supplement

16 SMITS, JAN. Petermanns Maps: Cartobibliography Of The Maps In petermanns Geographische Mitteilungen, 1855-1945.
HES & DE GRAAF, t Goy-Houten: 2004. The Utrecht Studies on the History of Cartography Series - Volume III. h Hardcover with dustjacket plus DC-ROM. Brand new book. 
Petermann's Maps focuses on the maps published in the famous German journal Petermanns Geographische Mitteilungen. This journal, which still exists today, greatly influenced the development of scientific geography and cartography in Germany in the nineteenth century. Numerous articles have been published by recognized experts in this field, along with a multitude of illustrations, including maps, prints and photographs. The journal developed into an important publication, setting the standard in the history of the great expeditions and discoveries, and European colonial matters. Petermann's Maps contains a bibliography of over 3400 maps, the complete series of maps published in Petermanns Geographische Mitteilungen between the year of its foundation, 1855, to the end of the Second World War. Besides the bibliography 160 of the most attractive geographical and thematic colored maps are included in Petermann's Maps. These maps can also be viewed on the CD-ROM accompanying the book. An extensive introduction precedes the cartobibliography proper, placing Petermanns Geographische Mitteilungen in its historical context. The introduction describes the history of geography from the eighteenth century onwards, outlining the development of the study of the science of cartography in Germany. The major role the founder of the journal, Augustus Petermann (1822-1878), and the publishing house Justus Perthes in Gotha played in these developments is discussed at length. The author, Jan Smits, has been in charge of the map collection of the Royal Library at The Hague since 1979. The series The Utrecht Studies on the History of Cartography in which Petermann's Maps appears as volume III, has been prepared under the direction of the Research Program Explokart of the University of Utrecht and is aimed at both researchers and laymen with an interest in these matters.
