A handsome desk diary drawing upon the Library’s superlative cartographic collection, with maps spanning the zoological and human to the scientific across 2000 years. Plus dissected globes, navigational charts, imagined lands and historic plans. Each week is illustrated with a fascinating detail, from a map of the moon and the voyages of Captain Cook to a Chinese map delineating heaven and earth and Sir Christopher Wren’s plan for rebuilding the City of London after the Great Fire in 1666.
