Published in Antwerp in 1570, it did something no previous book had done: here was the world in all its component parts, the chance to see our planet as a place of staggering variety and ultimate unity. It was the world's first-ever atlas." "Paul Binding has immersed himself in the Antwerp that produced Ortelius and his atlas, and has drawn on a mass of letters, personal documents, maps and pictures in order to bring it to life. He views Ortelius's life-work against the stormy backdrop and often violent events of the period, and relates his achievement to contemporaneous thinkers and artists. Imagined Corners stands as a tribute to the human need to impose order and reason on an all-too-turbulent world."--BOOK JACKET." ;
