Long description:
A keepsake collection of maps depicting legendary and real places for the lover of literature, history, and cartography. This exploration of the "Mythical Elsewhere" explores a wide array of places, from the well known to the obscure, through the eyes of historians, explorers, conquerors, and writers across the ages. Lose yourself in the past as you travel to such destinations as Troy, the Mughal Empire, the Congo, the river Nile, El Dorado, and many more. Since time immemorial, dreamlands like these have haunted the accounts of great explorers, erudite historians, and the minds of humankind. Over the centuries, these lands have become imbued with a mysterious aura, but through the maps and descriptions in this unique atlas, they are able to be visited once again. Embark on this poetic exploration of the world, accompanied by the great explorers of antiquity and Renaissance as well as poets, scholars, and novelists of all eras. Let such greats as Herodotus, Marco Polo, Christopher Columbus, and Heinrich Schliemann be your guide on this journey to dreamlike places that are sometimes imagined and imaginary but, to those who believe, always â perfectly real.â â It's a trip you will never forget.
