Mapping says a great deal about the way a nation sees itself and its place in the world. Through a series of fascinating maps, superbly reproduced in colour, this book shows how England has been depicted, from Matthew Paris to the Ordnance Survey. Arranged by theme, it examines maps drawn for military, administrative, sociological, medical and transport purposes and demonstrates how they unconsciously reveal the true state of the country and the hopes and fears of its inhabitants.
