This paperback reprint of the 2004 cloth edition is published in an oversized format (11x11.75") and filled with color plates of sea charts and maps, many of them from the age of exploration. Following an initial chapter on navigation, the remaining 10 chapters are each on a different locale, with the history of the area's exploration described and the earliest maps and charts depicted, including many hand-made examples, such as those used by Shackleton in Antarctica.
