For centuries, explorers, merchants, and military forces have relied on maps to help navigate our planet. Often skillfully drawn and meticulously plotted, these works of art require skill and creativity to produce. Using anecdotal evidence and scant geographical data, cartographers were known for including fanciful drawings to tease the mind and the imagination. Twelve antique maps from the British Librarys' collection of cartographic material invite you to go back in time and explore the world as it used to be.
