First published in 1921, as the revised and enlarged second edition of a 1912 original, this book presents an account regarding the different types of map projection, incorporating information on the relationships between methods of projection and the qualities of each method. Intended 'for the mapmaker and the map user', the text approaches its subject from a practical point of view and avoids extensive mathematical theorising. Illustrative figures are included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in geography, the history of cartography and the development of map projections.
