1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Loretta Clark on October 9, 2009
Format: Hardcover
I was well pleased with the information in "Historic Maritime Maps: 1290-1699." It was a picture of a reproduction of a globe from 1492 that impressed me the most. This was from the Bibliotheque nationale in Paris. Columbus might have had access to a globe. In addition to maps, the books contains a multitude of background information about people, places and history. Although the book contains an index on geographic location by year, it does not have a a subject index. Therefore, it limits the reader's ability to quick research. Even so, it is an interesting book for people who are interested in history from this time period.
