wi Explorera, dlaooterara of new acrape of the earth' ur
aaas are remembered for all time. Who ha erer heard even the
name of those who patiently plotted out the new land and made it
nnmcrfhln to tha rest of mankind? Doe any one cut a em all or
figure in history than the map-maker?
It i interesting to note that the modem world' biggest map,
f wMch the flrt sheets are now being issued, was planned by the
Genera Conference em bled at tha Britih Foreign Office which
rnme to place the great undertaking to eome extent under English
uapines. The English peoples hare rearer been the great map

The oldest maps bl existence are two Egyptian papyri hearing,
rough drawings of gold nrme In the Nubian desert. As early as
3800 B. 0. the King of Babylonia recorded surveys In clay tablet
for help in levying taxes, and hi the British Museum is a circular
"brick dating from 8800 B. C. showing lower Babylonia encircled
ajr "a great salt watsr rlTar."
The early Greeks draw picture map of the earth as a circular
Jane extending from the Caspian Ssa on the east to the Straits of
Gibraltar on the west, tha whol bounded by a great encompassing
freer; and fa th osntrs of this world they plaoed their beloved
Greece and tho Aegesn. Later fa tha lixth oentury B. 0. one
Anaxlmone gained tha title 40 first geographer of hi time by repre
senting the earth as an oblong rectangle resting in mid space on a
fashion of compressed sir. Ths later Greek philosopher and map
Dssjksrs developed sounder sclentlflo notion of latitude and longitude
sad the measuring of distances by pacing. Ptolemy in the second
santury A. D. kid oat a general map of the world which, in spite
sf many mistakes and crudities, remained the basia of moat progress
iva snap-making down to ths sixteenth century.
The hard-headed Roman bothered little about science and
As i in J fa their maps. They wanted practical charts for military
and political uses. The marvellous network of roads measured off
by milestone with which they oovercd the empire mndo an excellent
nasi for land-map, and for ths ooasts of the Mediterranean they
had the PtolsmsJo charts. The only two specimen of Roman map
making that hare come down to us are a plan of Rome and a road
map of the world in a narrow strip. The Romans usually drew
their world map on an oval plane in which the earth seemed to be
twice a long from east to west as from north bo south.
During ths Middle Age advanced map-making wae a tlcklls!
business owing to the attitude of the Church. The Holy ScripturcH
were supposed to have laid down once and for all the shape of thr
earth. The makers of rectangular msps pointed confidently to sue!
rtipressions as "the four comers of the earth" (Tssiah x., 18), and
'ield thut the Tabernacle was an Image of the world at large.
Before Oolumbu time, however, Ptolemaic theories were gain
tag force again. The idea with which Columbus started out on hn
voyage am fairly represented by a globe which a Oerman geographer
set up in Nuremberg In 1492. This globe was some twenty inches
m diameter and made of pasteboard covered with whiting and
parchment. .Not even the West Coast of Africa was correctly drawn
though the maker claimed he had been there, nnd the ocean separat
ing hr rope, from Asia was only an underused Atl intic, with nothing
ruUtantial in it savo .Tapani Gaily painted flags and decoration
diverted the attention from the bare spots of this sphere.
Immediately following the diVovery of America the Dutch
came to be the first map-maker. Antwerp and Amsterdam were
fajious centres of "cartography." In the eighteenth century t!
paJto passed to France, where the geographers did much to fill in t1
blanks and correct the errors in China, Africa and the Antaretu
regions. Since the middle of the nineteenth centurv Germany has
been the great makjtr of maps, scientific and practical. lEnglan
