´Stunning...divine´ Stephen Fry ´A fabulous book, good enough to eat with a spoon! Marvellous´ John Lloyd, creator of QI ´Perfect for the armchair adventurer historian, this is a rich visual exploration of some of the most beautiful charts ever created´ National Geographic ´Introduces us to a whole different way of looking at maps. Great illustrations, most engaging - the author is just a mine of information´ Simon Mayo´s Books of the Year The Golden Atlas is a spectacular visual history of exploration and cartography, a treasure chest of adventures from the chronicles of global discovery, illustrated with a selection of the most beautiful maps ever created. The book reveals how the world came to be known, featuring a magnificent gallery of exceptionally rare hand-coloured antique maps, paintings and engravings , many of which can only be found in the author´s collection. Arranged chronologically, the reader is taken on a breathtaking expedition through Ancient Babylonian geography and Marco Polo ´s journey to the Mongol Khan on to buccaneers ransacking the Caribbean and the voyages of seafarers such as Captain Cook and fearless African pathfinders. Their stories are told in an engaging and compelling style, bringing vividly to life a motley collection of heroic explorers, treasure-hunters and death-dealing villains - all of them accompanied by eye-grabbing illustrations from rare maps, charts and manuscripts. The Golden Atlas takes you back to a world of darkness and peril, placing you on storm-lashed ships, frozen wastelands and the shores of hostile territories to see how the lines were drawn to form the shape of the modern world. The author´s previous book, The Phantom Atlas , was a critically acclaimed international bestseller , described by Jonathan Ross as ´a spectacular, enjoyable and eye-opening read´ and this new book is sure to follow suit.

Atlas der erfundenen Orte
30,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Zu schön, um wahr zu sein Kalifornien als Insel, versunkene Königreiche und das irdische Paradies - diese und andere gefühlte Fakten haben Kartografen quer durch die Jahrhunderte fein säuberlich in ihren Atlanten festgehalten. Dabei hatten manche dieser Phantome ein erstaunlich langes Leben. Nach einer im 17. Jahrhundert der Phantasie entsprungenen Insel im Golf von Mexiko etwa hat man bis 2009 gesucht. Dann gab man sich geschlagen. Wo nahm der Irrglaube seinen Anfang? Warum wurden geografische Orte aufgezeichnet, die es gar nicht gab? Und was faszinierte die Menschen an all den bizarren Geschichten und Gestalten? Die hier vorgestellten historischen Karten präsentieren neben mancher tatsächlichen Entdeckung von Reisenden und Forschern vor allem Erfindungen und Irrtümer. Zusammen mit spannenden Begleittexten ergeben sie ein amüsantes Buch zum Blättern, Staunen und Wundern.
