By Joseph Marinucci on November 11, 2007
I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves historical maps. The collection spans nearly the entire history of the Old Dominion. The maps are beautifully reproduced with discernible detail that one can spend hours poring over. The accompanying text provides the historical context and background for the included maps. The book leaves one yearning for more. Would that all states had a book of this type available!

It's hard to tell from the photo, but this is actually a very large book crammed full of lovely detailed maps. The photos are very high quaility. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in Virginia or east coast history.
