Joan Blaeu Atlas Maior of 1665 Italia: Italia/ Italy/ Italien
Joan Blaeu Atlas Maior of 1665 Italia
Italia/ Italy/ Italien
Hardcover      ISBN: 3822851078
Maps of Italy from Joan Blaeu's exquisite world atlas of 1665 The finest and most comprehensive baroque atlas was Joan Blaeu's exceptional Atlas Maior, completed in 1665. The original eleven-volume Latin edition, containing 594 maps, put Blaeu ahead of his staunch competitor, mapmaker Joanes Janssonius, whose rivalry inspired Blaeu to produce a grandiose edition of the largest and most complete atlas to date. Covering Arctica, Europe, Africa, Asia, and America, Blaeu's Atlas Maior was a remarkable achievement and remains to this day one of history's finest examples of mapmaking. This reprint, including all 60 maps of Italy, is made from the National Library of Vienna's colored, gold-heightened copy, thus assuring the best possible detail and quality. Alongside original quotes from Joan Blaeu relating to the individual maps, the new text by Peter van der Krogt explains the historical and cultural associations and introduces the reader into the fascinating world of early modern cartography. The text is in Italian, English and German. The author: Peter van der Krogt, the leading expert in the field of Dutch atlases, is a collaborator on the Explokart Research Program for the History of Cartography at the University of Utrecht's Faculty of Geosciences. Since 1990 he has been working on Koeman's Atlantes Neerlandici, the carto-bibliography of atlases published in the Netherlands. His second project is the compilation, in co-operation with the Nijmegen University, of an illustrated and annotated catalogue of the Atlas Blaeu-Van der Hem, the most important multi-volume atlas preserved in the Austrian National Library, which was added to Unesco's ?Memory of the World? register in 2004.

The First Railroads: Atlas of Early Railroads
The First Railroads
Atlas of Early Railroads
Paperback      ISBN: 0228100097

A highly illustrated volume tracing the emergence of modern railways.

Praise for the author's previous title, America Discovered "Hayes offers more than just the state's emergent political boundaries and geological elevations. He presents a fascinating, map-based chronicle of the region's legendary gold rush, the gradual domination of its railroads, the development of its diverse ethnic composition, its blazing urban cataclysms, and its role in World War II. While laudably information-dense, the text is also an appealing, highly enjoyable read."
--Library Journal

In this book, Derek Hayes compiles archival maps and illustrations, many never before published, showing the locations and routes of the world's early railways, as well as the locomotive and rail technology that was key to the development of those railroads. In addition to maps, the illustrations include photos of most of the surviving first locomotives from collections around the world and of replicas too, where they exist.

Much of the world's early railways originated in Britain, but Hayes also considers the earliest systems in North America, continental Europe, and elsewhere. The book covers the emergence of the first steam locomotives, including the historically important Stockton and Darlington, the world's first public railway system to use steam locomotives, and Liverpool and Manchester, for its pioneering use of cast iron girders.

In addition to mainstream railways, atmospheric railways are considered as well as electric railways, underground railways, monorails, and mountain (rack) railways, all of which have fascinating histories.

For The First Railroads, Derek Hayes travelled to most of the locations mentioned and visited railway museums all over the world, amassing a wealth of information and illustrative materials, including never before seen ephemera. Here he proves again his reputation for in-depth research and rare photographs and maps -- and for making it enjoyably readable.

Historical Atlas of Canada: Canada's History Illustrated With Original Maps
Historical Atlas of Canada
Canada's History Illustrated With Original Maps
Hardcover      ISBN: 0295982772

Canada's history comes alive in this innovative book, which utilizes historical maps to illustrate and illuminate the past. Here are the often colorful, sometimes bizarre maps of European explorers who discovered the Americas while seeking a route to the riches of the Orient. Many of these early maps depict imagined straits and passages; one shows the St. Lawrence River flowing from an opening on the coast of California.Maps show what was known -- and often how little was known -- in a unique geographical way. Explorers created their own maps, but the maps they took with them also succinctly depict what they knew or expected to encounter, an expectation that often shaped their decisions. Native maps show how the land was known to aboriginal peoples before significant contact with Europeans.This atlas covers a period of a thousand years and contains essentially all the historically significant maps of the area that became Canada and the northern United States, gathered from major archives and libraries all over the world. There are English, French, Spanish, Russian, American, Italian, and Dutch maps; as well as maps drawn by Native people such as the Beothuk, Blackfoot, and Cree. Many of the maps are artistic, some utilitarian, but all are included for their historical significance and the story they have to tell.
