Editorial Reviews

Review

"The production standards are what readers have come to expect . . . the copy editing is meticulous, the bibliography immense and uniformly accurate, and, above all, the reproduction, deploymenty and keying of images both generous and of the highest consistency and quality. Secondly, the chapters are in the main of the highest standard. . . . In short, whilst I do not feel this volume much changes the ‘big picture’ we hold about the nature and geography of the Renaissance, what it does do is take one empirical location or archive – the map in all its forms – and use this as a site on which to flesh out and scrutinize contentions in intellectual, social and cultural history which have previously been inadequately supported. This is, in and of itself, a massive achievement which should demand the attention of all historians of the Renaissance, not merely those with an interest in science, geography and cartography.”
(Robert J. Mayhew Journal of Historical Geography 2008-06-20)

"Begun in the 1980s, this project has significantly broadened the scope of this niche in the larger world of historical study. . . . This volume, and for that matter the rest of the series, can be an invaluable resource for anyone researching this subject."
(Richard Pflederer History Today)

"As a historian of cartography, I can say with certainty that these volumes are indispensable to any researcher in the field and will be of interest to all those who love maps. Moreover, they can be enjoyed by a wide range of readers, from serious scholars to everyday map aficionados."
(Benjamin B. Olshin Isis)

“The ambition of this comprehensive reference work, treating the Renaissance period 1450 to 1650, is truly remarkable. . . . For those who are not map specialists this book is a fundamental starting point, an absolutely essential reference tool that opens up the field of cartography. But even to specialists it is certain to contain unfamiliar material, such is the depth of its coverage.”

(Simon Turner Print Quarterly 2009-11-10)
