IMAGO MVUNDI (MUNDI) – Vol II – A Periodical Review of Early Cartography – 1937 Review Copy

Short Description

The first volume of Imago Mundi had been published in Berlin in 1935. The founders were Leo Bagrow and Hans Wertheim. That year Wertheim left Germany escaping the horrible practices introduced against the Jews.

Bagrow continued, finding a publisher in England, Henry Stevens and an English editor Edward Lynam. So was the beginning of the greatest journal on cartography.

A scarce issue, more so a review copy with the charm of having many of the intended plates tipped into the document.

Folio, softcover, 115 pages plus adverts. Eleven full page plates, three large and folding and many other plates images throughout the text. Covers browned somewhat, internally clean … a very good copy.

Contents includes … From the Cosmos Picture to the World Map; Time Charts of Historical Cartography; The Evolution of Cartography in Japan; The “De Ventis” of Matthew Paris; Atlas by Vesconte Maggiolo 1518; The Booke of the Sea Carte; Kirlov the first Russian Atlas 1689-1737 etc. Numerous shorter articles including The Peking Map Collection; A Treasure Map etc

Imago Mundi at the beginning – already the highest quality and curiosity
