    Description

    Discover the history of the United Kingdom through maps
    Trade is the lifeblood of nations. It has provided vital goods and wealth to countries and merchants from the ancient Egyptians who went in search of gold and ivory to their 21st-century equivalents trading high-tech electronic equipment from the Far East.


    In this beautiful book, more than 70 maps give a visual representation of the history of World Commerce, accompanied by text which tells the extraordinary story of the merchants, adventurers, middle-men and monarchs who bought, sold, explored and fought in search of profit and power.


    The maps are all works of art, witnesses to history, and have a fascinating story to tell.


    The maps include
    * Catalhoeyuk Plan, c. 6200BC
    * Babylonian Map of the World, c. 600BC
    * Stone Map of China, 1136
    * Hereford Mappa Mundi, c. 1300
    * Buondelmonti Map of Constantinople, c. 1420
