A complete "ditto" to corisco's review. This is not a book to read through but to refer to. Capsule biographies of major mapmakers give useful information if you are checking a map's provenance. Exhaustive bibliographies after each chapter might be useful if you read twelve languages. Particularly strong in English county map information.

This one is a classic in the world of cartography books. It dates from the fifties and was written by R.V. Tooley, an authority on maps and history. I found this an interesting work but not easy to read. The value of it is its function as a reference work. When you find an old map and want to know more about its history, then this book can give some help.
