Imagined Corners: Exploring the World's First Atlas by Paul Binding
Published in Antwerp in 1570, the Theatrum orbis terrarum did something no previous book had done: here was the world in all its component parts, the chance to see our planet as a place of staggering variety and ultimate unity. It was the world's first ever atlas. The author has drawn on letters, personal documents, maps and pictures to bring this story vividly to life. Well illustrated throughout.
