About the Author

NAOMI REED KLINE is Professor of Art History at Plymouth State College.


Enjoyable and radable... As well as historians of cartography, the work is intended for medievalists and art historians, who should find much to stimulate and interest them. LIBRARY Sets out to determine how the great map was perceived by contemporaries. This required a very wide range of scholarly knowledge in related fields, and Kline's erudition in that respect is impressive. This book portrays that (medieval) mindset, like a rich tapestry, with depth and colour. HISTORY
