Cartography of North America, 1500-1800 by Pierluigi Portinaro

The earliest known authentic map of North America was drawn in 1500 by Juan de la Cosa, a shipmate of Christopher Columbus. Over the next three centuries, cartography would come of age both as a science and an art form and the mapping of America would tell a story of dating exploration and fierce colonial rivalry. This handsome volume contains 180 extensively captioned, full-color maps and over 90 supplementary illustrations.
