The Penguin atlas of modern history (to 1815)

In the Penguin atlas of modern history, Colin McEvedy has compiled an absorbing source of reference to the major developments of modern history from 1483 to 1815. Nearly forty maps and detailed commentary follow the voyages of Columbus, Magellan and Cook, the ebb of power from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic seaboard, and the protracted European struggle for control of a vast new money economy
