magnificent. I have spent a lifetime looking at old map books with a
magnifying glass hoping in vain to make out what that wondrous monster
is in the corner. Well, strain your eyes no longer: enlarged in sharp
detail and in brilliant living color are literally hundreds of
marvelous and monstrous beasts for you to look at and admire. This
book will satisfy even the most rigorous of scholars as it is
extremely well written and copiously footnoted. This book will be
a delight to fans of cartography, bestiaries and cryptozoolology. At
last, a serious book dedicated exclusively to sea monsters on maps.
They are no longer an amusing afterthought; here they finally get the
attention and study they deserve.
