In Greek and Roman Maps, O. A. W. Dilke follows the development of map-making skills, beginning in Babylonia and Egypt, through the contributions of Greek scientists and Roman administrators and surveyors, to the Age of Discovery. He provides examples of the full range of Greek and Roman maps, including town and building plans, itineraries and road maps, sea itineraries, and maps in art form.
"It is an extremely useful book, packed with information, simply and succinctly expressed... there is no doubt that it was Greek theoretical thinking and a growing knowledge of geography, combined with the practical demands imposed upon the administrators of the Roman Empire, which led to the development and widespread use of maps more or less as we know them." -- Mary E. Hoskins Walbank, Echos du monde classique
In Greek and Roman Maps,Dilke examines Classical cartography and its enduring influence on map-making through the beginning of the modern era.
