Reprint of the 1929 edition. Hardbound. Oversized Octavo. xii, 99 p. front. illus. (maps) 2 pl., port., facsim. Cambridge [Eng.] The University Press, 1929. Sir George Fordham was born in 1859 and produced many publications describing the maps and road books of the British Isles and France and donated his personal road book collection to the Royal Geographical Society. The Society triennially awards the Sir George Fordham Award for Cartobibliography, a 'term introduced by him for the cataloguing of maps on systematic plan' This book provides an outline of the development and progress of the art and science of cartography during the long period which precedes the modern systematic surveys organized by the Governments of the countries of Europe and the American Continent. He begins with the work of Christopher Saxton, a work he regards as laying the foundation of the conception of modern cartography. He also covers the famous French cartographer Nicolas Sanson. Another chapter looks at the foundation of exact and scientific survey by successive members of the Cassini family, and also to the work of the British Ordnance Survey. Many others are covered as well. A list of Works of reference have been added and an index is supplied
