Sea monsters on medieval and Renaissance maps by Chet Van Duzer( Book )

19 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and German and held by 589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The sea monsters on medieval and Renaissance maps, whether swimming vigorously, gambolling amid the waves, attacking ships, or simply displaying themselves for our appreciation, are one of the most visually engaging elements on these maps, and yet they have never been carefully studied. The subject is important not only in the history of cartography, art, and zoological illustration, but also in the history of the geography of the 'marvellous' and of western conceptions of the ocean. Moreover, the sea monsters depicted on maps can supply important insights into the sources, influences, and methods of the cartographers who drew or painted them. In this highly-illustrated book Chet Van Duzer analyses the most important examples of sea monsters on medieval and Renaissance maps produced in Europe, beginning with the earliest mappaemundi on which they appear in the tenth century and continuing to the end of the sixteenth century."--Publisher's description
Apocalyptic cartography : thematic maps and the end of the world in a fifteenth-century manuscript by Chet Van Duzer( )

Johann Schöner's globe of 1515 : transcription and study by Chet Van Duzer( Book )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a transcription, translation, and study of the toponyms and legends on Johann Schöner's globe of 1515, one of the earliest surviving globes produced following the discovery of America. This important globe has never been the subject of a detailed study. Chet Van Duzer investigates Schöner's sources and discusses the similarities and differences between Schöner's globe and contemporary maps and globes, particularly Martin Waldseemüller's world map of 1507. One of Schöner's iconographical sources for the sea monsters on his globe was the Hortus sanitatis, an anonymous illustrated encyclopedia first published in 1491. The differences between the two surviving exemplars of the globe are also examined; these differences are surprising, as the globe is printed. Van Duzer demonstrates that the Weimar exemplar of the globe was heavily restored at some point in its history, and thus is a less reliable witness of Schöner's cartography. This book is an extremely useful tool for anyone investigating the geography and cartography of the early sixteenth century."--Publisher's description
The world for a king : Pierre Desceliers' map of 1550 by Chet Van Duzer( Book )

10 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mapmaking has always been a serious business, whether surveying property limits, marking international boundaries or plotting lines of travel. Yet cartographers of all periods had a sense of humour, and mapmakers often used their artistic talents to create maps not for strictly geographical purposes but for the pleasure and entertainment of others. In this book, an expert cartographic researcher uncovers 100 curious, entertaining maps, drawn mainly from the unrivalled map collection in the British Library. Many of the maps depict countries in human or animal form, among them the famous 'Leo Belgicus' - the Low Countries in the shape of a lion. Many of the maps featured here were created for recreational play, with the secondary purpose of educating through enjoyment, including some of the very earliest cartographical game-maps, jigsaws, playing-card maps and even a jigsaw globe.With advances in printing techniques, publishers found they could affix maps to all manner of objects, often commemorative, such as the tankard celebrating Nelson's victory at Trafalgar in 1805. There are also maps on cups and saucers, tea towels, umbrellas, scarves and commemorative medals
