"A fine, unusual perspective of world history and cartographic influences."

"Attorneys who study maps either for work or pleasure — and many do — will enjoy Professor Evelyn Edson's The World Map, 1300–1492."

"A work of thoughtful design and fascinating narrative."

"Marvelous book."

"Edson has re-balanced our view of the later medieval period and in doing so has provided us with the latest scholarship in the field... The book is written in an easily accessible style and is very down to earth."

"This study deserves a wide readership... Magisterial survey."

"Throughout the work Evelyn Edson has cast her net widely, bringing under scrutiny many players, significant and lesser, who contributed to the making of maps in the two centures leading up to 1500. Her footnotes are extensive."

"The book brings together current scholarship on all of the many maps it features, and the glue that holds it all together is Edson's intellectual breadth and curiosity."

"A comprehensive and complex picture of the changing face of medieval geography. With the mastery of a formidable palette of historiographic knowledge and well-reasoned discussions of the sources, The World Map, 1300–1492 will certainly remain an important work to consult for both medieval and early modern scholars for many years to come."
