Cartographies of Travel and Navigation

Finding one’s way with a map is a relatively recent phenomenon. In premodern times, maps were used, if at all, mainly for planning journeys in advance, not for guiding travelers on the road. With the exception of navigational sea charts, the use of maps by travelers only became common in the modern era; indeed, in the last two hundred years, maps have become the most ubiquitous and familiar genre of modern cartography. Examining the historical relationship between travelers, navigation, and maps, Cartographies of Travel and Navigation considers the cartographic response to the new modalities of modern travel brought about by technological and institutional developments in the twentieth century. Highlighting the ways in which the travelers, operators, and planners of modern transportation systems value maps as both navigation tools and as representatives of a radical new mobility, this collection brings the cartography of travel—by road, sea, rail, and air—to the forefront, placing maps at the center of the history of travel and movement. Richly and colorfully illustrated, Cartographies of Travel and Navigation ably fills the void in historical literature on transportation mapping.

Their principal objective is to explore the ways in which maps have interacted with society in England's past, to analyse the roles that maps have played and the uses to which they have been put. It is often a story of discontinuity rather than evolution, but the authors recognise many connections across the centuries, at the same time seeking to avoid too insular a view noting the influence of ongoing intellectual and cartographic developments in the rest of Europe."--BOOK JACKET.
