This attractively illustrated atlas shows how humankind's thirst for knowledge and increasing ability to act on ambition created an age of adventure and discovery across uncharted seas. Organized chronologically, coverage includes biographies of the famous navigators of the day, the voyages they undertook, and the ships they sailed; about 200 color illustrations; detailed color maps charting the gradual discovery of new lands; and a continuous timeline of dates and key events. Konstam has been Curator of Arms and Armor at the Tower of London and Chief Curator of the Mel Fisher Maritime Museum in Key West, Florida. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
