Maps tell the fascinating story of how humans conceive of the world and their place in it.

Throughout history, map-makers have documented their surroundings - carving on tusks, stone and wood; painting on papyrus, silk, animal hide and tree fibre; even constructing three-dimensional marvels from sticks and shells.

Maps can help you find your way or show a route to others; they can record land ownership or discovery; they may be used as an aid to industries such as farming and mining or as a political tool.

In this thrilling selection of maps through history, author Anne Rooney brings together works that were of singular importance in their own right and others whose main significance was simply their jaw-dropping beauty, as well as intriguing oddities that will seize the interest of even the most reluctant map-reader.
