Review :

I read this book in 36 hours-- which is not something I ever thought I'd say about a book that deals with the antiquarian map trade. But Blanding has written this such that I couldn't put it down-- the end of his chapters, in particular, propelled me right forward to the next. A book that's fun to read and also teaches you something (I haven't thought of maps the same way since.) Brilliant.
