Geographical Notes

    Article metrics


    THE Berlin Geographical Society are preparing for publication one of the most valuable mementoes of the Columbus celebration, in the form of a magnificent atlas, containing amongst other early maps a series of hitherto unpublished delineations of the Atlantic of very early date. These maps have been discovered in manuscript in Italian libraries, where they were copied by a young German geographer of great artistic power. They will be published with all the brilliant colouring of the original illuminated MSS.
