Although one wishes for the full-size maps from the original exhibit, this book is the next best thing, providing a wealth of maps, with detailed, informative notes about each of them. I live in a state without a literary map, so I hope this book will inspire someone to produce one as attractive as Georgia's, for example. It is fun just to browse through and discover surprises, such as the startling Ian Fleming Thriller Map, or An Ancient Mappe of Fairyland, or the map of Homer's "Odyssey" in the shape of the British Isles, or Franz Kafka's Prague. Of course Shakespeare is well represented, and so are Tolkien and Mark Twain, as well as several Russian authors. A quotation from "Moby Dick" introduces the section on imaginary worlds: "It was not on any map. Real places never are." There I found Paul Bunyan's pictorial map of the United States, where, with the help of a magnifying glass, I was well entertained with accounts of his exploits. I like the layout of the book and the carefully-researched explanations throughout.

5つ星のうち 1.0 A good idea --- poorly executed 2000/3/23

This is not the first book of literary maps I've seen. I an a former junior high school librarian and had several in my reference section. When I saw the ad for this book I thought it would be the definitive book of the type. It isn't. All but a few of the maps are printed in black and white. By the time the maps were reduced small enough to fit on the page, they were pretty much too small to read. Save your money.

5つ星のうち 5.0 I take issue with these negative reviews 2006/1/4

They are right to point out that the images in the map are not in color, and are not as legible as one might like, but they are mistaken to find fault with the book for these reasons. This is not an atlas of literary maps, but, as the authors put it, a "cartobibliography" of literary maps. An atlas can be expected to provide high-quality reproductions of the maps it includes, because it is meant to stand in for the originals. A cartobibliography does not pretend to do so. It is meant as a guide for readers and researchers who are eager to identify maps that they will then consult at the appropriate library or archive. Many cartobibliographies do not even include images. This one does, but they are clearly meant only to give you a good idea of what the map is like, so that you can decide whether or not to go to the trouble of chasing it down. The fact that this cartobibliography includes so many images, and that they are all clear and well annotated, makes this an excellent cartobibliography. Know, however, that this is what you're buying, not an atlas.

5つ星のうち 1.0 Now I know why this book wasn't reviewed by Booklist 2000/3/4

How sad that someone would go to all this effort to puttogether something that is basically useless. The print on the mapsis too small to read. All but 20 of the 278 pages of maps are in black and white. I thought I'd be getting something that my grandchildren could use as they were coming up through the years. There is always something about having a map that intrigues all of us, and adds a little bit more to our imaginations. When I was a junior high school librarian, I had several books of literary maps. Unfortunately, I don't remember their names. The students just loved them. Save your money on this one.

I saw an article on this book in CIVILIZATION magazine and looked forward to buying it. Just as I was about to call the Library of Congress and order it, I thought I would check Amazon. Thankfully, Amazon reviewers noted the conspicuous shortcomings of this expensive book. Thank you, Amazon for saving me money. Buy the magazine - all the maps are in color.
