Talking Maps

Hardback
by Brotton, Jerry
Every map tells a story.

In turn, maps generate more stories, taking users on new journeys in search of knowledge and adventure.

Lost Maps of the Caliphs

Hardback
by Rapoport, Yossef
About a millennium ago, in Cairo, someone completed a large and richly illustrated book. In the course of thirty-five chapters, our unknown author guided the reader on a journey from the outermost cosmos and planets to Earth and its lands, islands, features and inhabitants. This treatise, known as The Book of Curiosities, was unknown to modern scholars until a remarkable manuscript copy surfaced in 2000.

New York in Quotations

Hardback
by Mitchell, Jaqueline
'Make your mark in New York and you are a made man' wrote Mark Twain, encapsulating both the naked ambition of its citizens and the opportunities up for grabs in the Big Apple. Others take a more cynical approach: it's 'an aviary over-stocked with jays' (O. Henry), 'a sucked orange' (Ralph Waldo Emerson) or 'fantastically charmless and elaborately dire' (Henry James). Over the last three-and-a-half centurie...

Some are portentous - 'a conspiracy of ravens'...
