Treasures from the Map Room: a journey through the Bodleian collections
The stories behind 75 of the Bodleian’s extraordinary maps are captured in the recent Bodleian publication Treasures from the Map Room. It explains the significance of famous cartographic treasures, beautiful decorative early maps, and some lesser known maps with stories to tell, from the 14th to the 21st century. Debbie Hall, the book’s editor, will give a virtual tour of some of its highlights, including the famous Gough Map of Great Britain and the earliest surviving map of Oxford.
