The first full study in the English language to give context to the extraordinary life and seminal work of the Nuremburg mathematician, cartographer and scientist Johannes Schöner (d. 1543). Schöner's collection of maps and notes offers an unprecedented insight into cartographic development during this critical period in the history of science and exploration.
