This collection of essays provides a broad overview of the history of European cartography between the Renaissance and the nineteenth century. The cosmographic perceptions and representations from the early Renaissance to the Enlightenment, the impact of the European discoveries in mapmaking, the mapping of colonial territories, and the close link between cartography and statecraft from the Enlightenment to the nineteenth century constitute the themes around which the different essays are organized.
