The Island of Lost Maps: A True Story of Cartographic Crime
Miles Harvey, "The Island of Lost Maps: A True Story of Cartographic Crime"
ISBN: 0375501517, 0767908260 | 2000 | EPUB | 432 pages | 5 MB


The Island of Lost Maps tells the story of a curious crime spree: the theft of scores of valuable centuries-old maps from some of the most prominent research libraries in the United States and Canada. The perpetrator was Gilbert Joseph Bland, Jr., an enigmatic antiques dealer from South Florida, whose cross-country slash-and-dash operation had gone virtually undetected until he was caught in 1995-and was unmasked as the most prolific American map thief in history. As Miles Harvey unravels the mystery of Bland's life, he maps out the world of cartography and cartographic crime, weaving together a fascinating story of exploration, craftsmanship, villainy, and the lure of the unknown.
