The Queen Mary Atlas.

London: Folio Society, 2005. Collector's Edition. Full Leather. 31 x 22.5 inches in clamshell. Please note that this is MISSING the commentary volume by Peter Barber. Some "scuffing" to the front of the book and the clamshell case. Small "indent" to the front of the book. Includes 12 double-page maps and charts. Limited to 1000 numbered copies. From the insert: "The Queen Mary Atlas is both a glorious example of the catagrapher's art and a fascinating historical document. As we turn the huge pages, we see the world both as it was conceived in the fertile imaginations of the middle ages and at the same time as it was seen through the eyes of the seafaring explorers of the Renaissance. A Prized possession of the British Library, it is without question one of the most important and remarkable manuscripts in the history of map-making. The Folio Society is delighted to announce the publication of the first-ever facsimile edition." Near Fine. Item #51459
