Imago Mundi The International Journal for the History of Cartography

The English-language, fully-refereed, journal Imago Mundi was founded in 1935 and is the only international, interdisciplinary and scholarly journal solely devoted to the study of early maps in all their aspects. Full-length articles, with abstracts in English, French, German and Spanish, deal with the history and interpretation of maps and mapmaking in any part of the world, from earliest times to the mid-twentieth century. Shorter articles communicate significant new findings or new opinions. All articles are fully illustrated. Each volume also contains three reference sections that together provide an up-to-date summary of current developments and make Imago Mundi a vital journal of record as well as information and debate: Book Reviews; an extensive and authoritative Bibliography; and a Chronicle, the official record for the previous year compiled from the data supplied by National Representatives in 25 countries.
