A Mapmakers Dream - James Cowan

Hodder & Stoughton, 1997, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good+ - in Very Good+ DJ.

In sixteenth-century Venice, in an island monastery, a cloistered monk experiences the adventure of a lifetime - all within the confines of his cell. Part historical fiction, part philosophical mystery, this is the story of Fra Mauro and his struggle to realize his life's work: to make a perfect map - one that represents the full breadth of Creation.
