Dear All:


For those interested in early atlases, I recommend this site: two libraries at the University of Bristol -- special collections and geographical sciences -- have completely imaged a number of atlases and arranged them in four categories, with interesting commentary:

• Renaissance Theatres
• The Rhetoric of Truth
• The Colonial Gaze
• National Identities and Conflict

Go and enjoy!
