Beginning in the 1500s with maps of the vast, wild territory La Florida, this book traces the recorded geographies of Europe's first North American frontier, right up to its statehood in 1846. In-depth essays and annotations of individual maps place each in historical context and provide a framework for understanding Florida's changing identity. Simultaneously a history of New World cartography and of its geographic errors and eccentricities, Borders of Paradise surveys the role of maps in the exploration and settlement of the New World and will be of interest to cartography enthusiasts and scholars alike.
