In this illustrated survey, drawing upon the extensive collections of maps preserved in the British Library, The Public Record Office and other archives, Professor Harvey discusses all the ways in which maps were used in Tudor England, and charts the progress of what he has termed a "cartographic revolution". Maps as we understand them today were effectively an invention of the 16th century, and the increase in both the use of and understanding of maps during that period was greatly aided by the spread of printing. Professor Harvey's study covers maps and their uses in all aspects of political life and ordinary daily life, with many illustrations.
