GINSBERG, William B. [Reference book on maps of Scandinavia]
Printed Maps of Scandinavia and the Arctic 1482-1601. New York: Septentrionalium Press, 2006. New. Cloth & illus. d/w. pp. 214.
The first in-depth book to deal with the charting of Norway's coastline, beginning with the first pilot guide of 1585 by Lucas Jansz. Waghenaer, proceeds through the predominance of the van Keulen family firm. the English cartographers active from the mid-17th century, and concludes with the official French and Scandinavian production of the late 18th/early 19th century. With its 320 illustrations, including several of rare or unrecorded maps, solid underlying research, and high-quality production, Sea Charts of Norway combines visual appeal and intellectual rigor. Special features, such as full title information for more than 220 maps, a graphical comparison of coastal chart coverage, and a gazetteer of place names, enhance its value as a reference work for collectors, dealers, and specialists.
