    schema:reviewBody ""Beginning in the sixteenth century, and continuing down to the late nineteenth when historical atlases became widely available, Goffart sets out in alternating, paired chapters both milestones in the origins of historical atlases and individual maps illustrating historical scenes. He focuses especially on maps depicting the medieval period, because the development on maps for history hinged particularly on portrayals of this segment of the postclassical, "modern" past. He documents how mapping for history and changing historical understandings of the Middle Ages were closely linked. Goffart concludes the book with a detailed catalogue of historical maps and atlases produced from 1570 to 1870: the catalogue lists more than 700 items from sixty collections around the world, including important, previously unknown maps and atlases that he came across in more than a decade of primary research. Historians of cartography, medievalists, and anyone seriously interested in the role of maps in portraying history will find it invaluable."--Jacket." ;
