Editorial Reviews

The New York Times - John Noble Wilford
…a richly illustrated delight to the eye. I advise a slow tour of the maps, drawings, marginal notes and other material remains of Schöner's wide-ranging mind. Read the informative captions, then begin the text. General readers will find the accounts of Schöner's place in history and the preservation of the map lucid and fascinating.
