The unifying theme of this exhibit catalog is the governmental use of maps. Fifty maps are described, but unfortunately only 10 are illustrated. The maps are grouped by region; Italy, Spain, France, England, Austria, Poland-Lithuania, and the United States. In the latter category we find 10 maps, including the Mitchell map, the Lewis & Clark map, a Mason & Dixon map, and the Seven Ranges of Townships map. The catalog provides a good overview of the political impact of maps, and is certainly worth the price.
