Originally published in 1931 as a guide for mathematically-minded geography students, this book addresses the mathematical theories underlying the construction of maps. Melluish reviews the problems inherent in depicting a sphere on a flat plane and the various ways in which these problems can be solved by varying projections. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the mathematical underpinnings of maps.
