Long before GPS, when the world was a great unknown, kings, merchants, and mariners needed to know what lay beyond the horizon. Enter the cartographers, who turned reports from returning explorers into useful maps for those who would follow. In the great Age of Discovery, from the fifteenth to the seventeenth century, these artisans helped Europeans span the globe and connect civilisations. Included in this calendar are a dozen antique map reproductions from the British Library’s vast and complex collection of cartographic material.
