German bombardment and a subsequent fire in did severe damage to the cathedral. The ruined cathedral became one of the central images of anti-German propaganda produced in France during the war, which presented it, along with the ruins of the Cloth Hall at Ypres and the University Library in Louvain , as evidence that German aggression targeted cultural landmarks of European civilization. From the end of World War I to the present day [update] an international effort to restore the cathedral from the ruins has continued. The collection of preserved buildings and Roman ruins remains monumentally impressive.
During World War II the city suffered additional damage. But in Reims, at on the morning of 7 May , General Eisenhower and the Allies received the unconditional surrender of the German Wehrmacht. The Rue de Vesle, the main commercial street continued under other names , traverses the city from southwest to northeast, passing through the Place Royale.
The oldest monument in Reims, the Porte de Mars "Mars Gate", so called from a temple to Mars in the neighbourhood , a triumphal arch feet in length by 43 in height, consists of three archways flanked by columns. Popular tradition tells that the Remi erected it in honour of Augustus when Agrippa made the great roads terminating at the city, but it probably belongs to the 3rd or 4th century. The Mars Gate was one of 4 Roman gates to the city walls , which were restored [ by whom? In its vicinity a curious mosaic, measuring 36 feet by 26, with thirty-five medallions representing animals and gladiators , was discovered in Note too the Gallo-Roman sarcophagus , allegedly that of the 4th-century consul Jovinus, preserved in the archaeological museum in the cloister of the abbey of Saint-Remi.
Many people know Reims for its cathedral, Notre-Dame de Reims , formerly the place of coronation of the kings of France. The archiepiscopal palace, built between and , and in part rebuilt in , served as the residence of the kings of France on the occasion of their coronations. The salon salle du Tau , where the royal banquet took place, has an immense stone chimney that dates from the 15th century. The chapel of the archiepiscopal palace consists of two storeys, of which the upper still as of [update] serves as a place of worship. Both the chapel and the salle du Tau have decorative tapestries of the 17th century, known as the Perpersack tapestries, after the Flemish weaver who executed them.
Saint Remi Basilica, about a mile from the Cathedral of Notre Dame of Reims, takes its name from the fifth-century Saint Remi , revered as the patron saint of the inhabitants of Reims for more than fifteen centuries. The basilica approaches the cathedral in size. Adjacent to the basilica stands an important abbey, formerly known as the Royal Abbey of St Remi. The abbey sought to trace its heritage back to St Remi, while the present abbey building dates back to the 17th and 18th centuries. The Saint Remi Basilica dates from the 11th, 12th, 13th and 15th centuries.
Most of the construction of the church finished in the 11th century, with additions made later. As of [update] it remains the seat of an active Catholic parish holding regular worship services and welcoming pilgrims. It has been classified as an historical monument since and is one of the pinnacles of the history of art and of the history of France. Several royal and archepiscopal figures lie buried in the basilica, but in unidentified graves. They include:. The public can visit the abbey building, now [update] the Saint-Remi Museum. The abbey closed in the wake of the French Revolution the government had all French monasteries dissolved in February In the construction of a chain of detached forts started in the vicinity, the French Army having selected Reims as one of the chief defences of the northern approaches to Paris.
Atop the ridge of St Thierry stands a fort of the same name, which with the neighbouring work of Chenay closes the west side of the place. To the north the hill of Brimont has three works guarding the Laon railway and the Aisne canal. Farther east, on the old Roman road, stands the Fort de Fresnes. Due east, the hills of Arnay are crowned with five large and important works which cover the approaches from the upper Aisne.
This ceremony was also addressed by Blaise Diagne , the Senegalese political leader. General Louis Archinard was the president of the committee that supervised the erection of the monument, highlighting the role of African troops of the 1st Colonial Infantry Corps in the defense of Reims from the German Army in They were particularly renowned for their tenacious defence of Fort de la Pompelle. The original monument, consisting of five figures, was a replica of a similar monument erected in Bamako , Mali in January The monument was dismantled during the German occupation in September In September , on the occasion of the fortieth anniversary of the Defence of Reims, a new monument was started.
In , on the occasion of the ninetieth anniversary of the defence of Reims, a major ceremony was held in remembrance of the Black Army of Reims, attended by Jean-Marie Bockel , Rama Yade and Adeline Hazan. The Church of St Jacques dates from the 13th to the 16th centuries. A few blocks from the cathedral, it stands as of [update] in a neighbourhood of shopping and restaurants. What remains of the Abbey of St. Denis has become a Fine Arts Museum. The old College of the Jesuits also survives as a museum. Originally the walls were lavishly decorated in Art Deco style by Gustave Louis Jaulmes , but in the walls were painted white, giving an austere appearance.
The Foujita Chapel , designed and decorated by the Japanese School of Paris artist Tsuguharu Foujita , became famed for its frescos. It was listed as an historic monument in The Surrender Museum is the building in which on 7 May , General Eisenhower and the Allies received the unconditional surrender of the German Wehrmacht. Reims is served by two main railway stations: Gare de Reims in the city centre, the hub for regional transport, and the new Gare de Champagne-Ardenne TGV 5 kilometres 3 miles southwest of the city with high-speed rail connections to Paris, Metz, Nancy and Strasbourg.
Public transport within the city consists of buses and a tramway , the latter opened in Many of the largest champagne-producing houses , known as les grandes marques , have their headquarters in Reims, and most open for tasting and tours. Champagne ages in the many caves and tunnels under Reims, which form a sort of maze below the city. Carved from chalk , some of these passages date back to Roman times. This renders that although the maritime influence moderates averages, it nevertheless is prone to hot and cold extremes in certain instances.
Reims has a relatively gloomy climate due to the said maritime influence and the dominance of low-pressure systems for much of the year. In spite of this, the amount of precipitation is fairly limited. The French Grand Prix took place here 14 times between and As of [update] the football club Stade Reims , based in the city, competed in the Ligue 1 , the first-highest tier of French football.
Stade Reims became the outstanding team of France in the s and early s and reached the final of the European Cup of Champions twice in that era. In October , the city hosted the second Teqball World Cup. The city has hosted the Reims Marathon since This multidisciplinary university develops innovative, fundamental and applied research. It provides more than 18 students in Reims 22 in Champagne-Ardenne with a wide initial undergraduate studies program which corresponds to society's needs in all domains of the knowledge.
The university also accompanies independent or company backed students in continuing professional development training. It hosts both the Europe-Africa and Europe-America Program  with more than students in the respective programs. Vanaf midden maart zal ook in de bovenzaal een serie kaarten worden getoond. Kaarten van Gelre en Kleef is een expositie van originele kaarten uit de zeventiende tot negentiende eeuw.
Omdat Huissen ooit op de grens van beide gewesten lag, is het op kaarten van zowel Gelre en de Betuwe aan de oostkant als op kaarten van het Hertogdom Kleef aan de westkant te vinden. De kaarten zijn meestal handmatig ingekleurd en zijn dan waren kunststukjes. Maar ook kaarten zonder inkleuring zijn de moeite waard. De bij veel kaarten getoonde details met de omgeving van Huissen laten zien, dat kaartenmakers in het verleden moeite hadden met plaatsnamen en precieze grensaanduidingen. Een enkele keer lijkt zelfs Angeren in het Kleefse land te liggen.
De in de bovenzaal getoonde kaarten hebben meer rechtstreeks op Huissen betrekking.
Omdat er natuurlijk maar weinig gedrukte kaarten van Huissen zijn, zal daar meer sprake zijn van reproducties van getekende kaarten. Het oudste materiaal komt uit het zogenaamde legerboek van Huissen uit de jaren Daarnaast werd het Ambt Huissen al in gedetailleerd in kaart gebracht door Pruisische landmeters. De prekadastrale kaarten uit de jaren bieden de eerste beelden van de stad. Omdat Huissen aan de Rijn ligt, komt het ook voor op een groot aantal rivierkaarten. Keuze te over dus. Deze wereldkaart met een formaat van 2 bij 3 meter, bood de meest actuele kennis van de wereld. Na lange tijd weer te zien voor publiek.
Blaeu's wereld in kaart meester-cartograaf in de Gouden Eeuw is een uitbreiding van de populaire Atlassen tentoonstelling. Wat is er te zien? Met een loep in de hand krijg je de gelegenheid om alle verrassende details op de kaart te ontdekken. Daarnaast maak je kennis met de westerse en superieure kijk op inboorlingen; kannibalen en een lama in Zuid-Amerika, olifanten in Afrika, zeemonsters en zeeslagen.
Een echte ontdekkingsreis! De Amsterdamse firma Blaeu De firma Blaeu was de grootste producent van kaarten in de zeventiende eeuw. De boekhandel van de firma Blaeu was gevestigd vlak bij de haven, het huidige Damrak in Amsterdam. Deze locatie was niet toevallig gekozen. Daar arriveerden nieuwe producten en informatie van over de hele wereld. De cartografie van de firma Blaeu heeft dan ook veel invloed gehad op het wereld- en kaartbeeld. Veel cartografen probeerden Joan Blaeu na te volgen of te verbeteren. De must-sees De wereldkaart van Blaeu zit vol symboliek, illustraties en beeldende verhalen.
De details zijn klein, maar opmerkelijk. De kaart vraagt om een bezoekje, maar hier verklappen we alvast de verhalen achter een paar opvallende details. From Cook's journal detailing the first crossing of the Antarctic Circle to handwritten log books, stunning artwork and intricate maps, chart the voyages, which spanned more than a decade, and explore the experiences of people on the ship and in the places visited.
Drawings by the Polynesian high priest and navigator Tupaia, who joined the first voyage at Tahiti and accompanied Cook to New Zealand and Australia, will be going on public display for the first time together, alongside works by expedition artists Sydney Parkinson, John Webber and William Hodges. Tupaia's paintings include a series of depictions of Tahitian society and culture, as well as drawings from New Zealand and Australia.
The collection of original maps, artworks and journals from the voyages, alongside rare printed books and newly commissioned videos, seek to shed new light on the encounters that completed the outline of the known world and formed the starting point for two centuries of globalisation. Dat omvangrijke handelsrijk kan alleen met behulp van een grote papierstroom worden bestuurd vanuit de Republiek. Deze schat aan informatie is een van de meest bijzondere archieven en vormt al jarenlang een unieke bron voor onderzoekers. Part of the Kaart van de Indische Oost. Manuscript op perkament.

In our audioguide you will also discover the - sometimes quite astonishing - little stories behind this mind-boggling topic. Niets is meer vertrouwd en tegelijk zo ongrijpbaar. Soms gaat hij razendsnel. Soms tergend traag. Wat je ook probeert, je krijgt er geen vat op. Met tot de verbeelding sprekende objecten en geschriften die al sinds eeuwen dit mysterie proberen te ontrafelen, brengt deze tentoonstelling een ode aan al die wetenschappers, instrumentenbouwers, ingenieurs en avonturiers die eeuwenlang gezocht hebben naar een antwoord op die ene wetenschappelijke vraag: Hoe laat is het?
Samen met Sven Speybrouck, de man van o. Interne Keuken op Radio 1 en Publiek Geheim op Canvas, en filosoof en wetenschapshistoricus Maarten Van Dyck, tevens curator van de tentoonstelling, gaat de bezoeker, gewapend met een audiogids, op ontdekkingsreis. Sven vraagt Maarten de oren van het lijf, nieuwsgierig naar de petites histoires achter dit hersenbrekende topic. Ter gelegenheid van de ste verjaardag van de universiteit, stuurt ze wetenschappelijke collecties uit het GUM en de Boekentoren Out of the Box naar 4 culturele instellingen in Gent voor een verrassende dialoog tussen wetenschap en stad.
Venue: Biblioteca de la Universidad, Avda. Zijn prachtige kaarten van onze contreien worden in meerdere afleveringen tentoongesteld in de exporuimte in de bibliotheek. Na werk van de Visschers cartografen en over de r evoluties in de cartografie laat deze derde aflevering prachtige oude kaarten zien van de Brusselse cartograaf Fricx.
Vooreerst de volledige Zuidelijke Nederlanden in 24 folio bladeren, tentoongesteld als een enorme wandkaart van 2,50 meter op 4,50 meter. De tentoonstelling laat ook een aantal kaarten zien van de Franse cartograaf De Lisle, een tijdgenoot van Fricx. Deze zeer succesrijke cartograaf bracht een grotere nauwkeurigheid door aan te sluiten bij wetenschappelijke astronomie en kritische analyse van een enorm netwerk van correspondenten.
Aflevering 3, Fricx Op een historische kaart uit van de omgeving van Luik en Maastricht, toen onderdeel van de Zuidelijke Nederlanden, staat Bilzen en omgeving vermeld. Bibliotheek De Kimpel laat u kennismaken met de boeiende wereld van historische kaarten. Eugene Fricx is een minder bekende uitgever-cartograaf. Zijn belangrijkste uitgave was een grote kaart van de Zuidelijke Nederlanden in 24 folio-bladzijden, uitgebracht tussen en Hij haalde de informatie bij Franse militairen die tijdens de Spaanse Successieoorlog heel het gebied in kaart brachten.
Zo realiseerde hij een gedetailleerde kaart die de meeste informatie ooit gaf, tot de Oostenrijkse graaf Ferraris in zijn kaart uitbracht. Alle 24 folio's van deze kaart worden tentoongesteld als een enorme wandkaart van 2,50 meter op 4,50 meter. Deze kaart is in feite een bundel van verschillende soorten kaarten en verscheen in , toen 23 van de 24 topografische kaarten van de Zuidelijke Nederlanden klaar waren. De 24ste kaart werd pas in gepubliceerd. Sommige ervan werden gedrukt in het jaar waarin de veldslag plaatsvond en kunnen worden beschouwd als een soort militair verslag.
Voor zijn plannen van veldslagen en belegeringen van steden kon Frickx gebruik maken van kaarten die waren getekend door militaire ingenieurs of officieren van wie de meesten werkten voor de geallieerde strijdkrachten waaronder Oostenrijk en de Nederlanden. Wed Sat, Sun For others, especially in Tampa, they begin 70 years earlier with the arrival of the cigar industry and the founding of Ybor City in Or, maybe it was back in the s when the McKay family started shipping cattle from Tampa's Ballast Point to Havana. However, in Gateways to the Caribbean: Mapping the Florida-Cuba Connection , you'll find an unbroken thread between the Sunshine State and the island nation dating back nearly years.
On view through 28 January , Gateways to the Caribbean charts five centuries of connections and interaction between Florida and Cuba through rare and original maps, lithographs and other documents. In total, the more than 50 maps that make up Gateways to the Caribbean highlight the Spanish and British occupations of Cuba and Florida in the 15th and 18th centuries, the development of rail and steam ship lines that fostered trade and travel in the 19th and early 20th centuries, and tourist maps of Cuba printed both in the s and as recently as Also included in the exhibit are a collection of color lithographs depicting the British attack on Havana in , in which they seized control of the island and wrested Florida away from Spain; a print by Cuban artist Ibrahim Miranda, created at the University of South Florida's Graphics Studio in ; and several tourists and travel maps, on loan to the History Center from HistoryMiami in South Florida.

Sirven para orientarse y a menudo para perderse. Todas ellas dan forma y permiten imaginar cosas inapreciables o remotas. Sin embargo, nada es lo que parece. The exact reason for the catastrophe has remained a mystery for years, with stories surfacing of the men having endured starvation, madness and even cannibalism. Divers are still undertaking extensive searches on the wrecks in order to uncover more clues, while mummified bodies of some of the crew members are undergoing DNA testing. The personal items and archaeological finds in the exhibition — many of them on display for the first time ever — will paint a vivid picture of what humans are capable of when pushed to extremes.

Enigszins verrassend zijn de vele kaarten over Europa in de oudheid en de kaarten uit het Heilig Land. Sunday Felkl and Son, which had been active in Roztoky by Prague for nearly years. This the largest Austro-Hungarian company produced unbeatably the best globes in eight sizes, ten versions and seventeen world languages.
They also printed the first globes in national languages, not only in Czech but also in Hungarian and Polish. They were holders of two patents for special folding globes. They also offered special instruments such as telluria, sololunaria, planetaria and armillary spheres. They exported both to Europe and overseas. Their globes were appreciated in many of the world's Paris, Vienna and national exhibitions Prague. Austro-Hungarian Ministry of Instruction ordered that their globes become the teaching aid. Besides the family and the firm there will be also introduced the foremen and workers, domestic and foreign authors of the firm, but particularly their globes in different language versions, telluria, printing stones, original instructional brochures and also original period advertisements.
The exhibition will be accompanied by video presentation. Accompanying programme: within the Prague Museum Night on 10 June there will be guided tours This display marks the th anniversary of the Battle of Passchendaele. The exhibition has been curated by the association Giovane Europa from Ascoli Piceno, Italy, on the occasion of the celebration of the centenary of Finnish independence.
The exhibition focuses on the depiction of Finland and offers a journey through ancient cartography history and the representation of the country from the sixteenth to the twentieth century. It places special emphasis on satirical cartography between the end of nineteenth century and the First World War, as these periods are strictly connected to Finnish independence. In fact, during the centuries, cartography has changed its identity and purpose by assuming symbolic features and becoming a narrator of politics and history. This can be seen in European maps from the beginning of the twentieth century, which have been enriched with satirical comics humorously describing the tensions between various European countries on the verge of the First World War.
The cartographic collection has been compiled by a number of eminent journalists and cartographers of the time, such as Fred Rose England and Galantara Italy — artists who incorporated symbols into the complex social context of the Great War. This period is especially important to Finland, as those series of events led Finland to political independence.
The exhibition has been made possible thanks to the partnership with Finlandia-Italia Ry and Niinivirta European Cargo. We may see here a first kind of world trading globalisation , centered on the Indian Ocean, with a large volume of maritime trade using the regular winds of the Monsoon, and bringing prosperity to cities such as Aden, Ormuz, Mascate, Cochin, Calicut and, far away, Canton in south China. This maritime trade brought from the East Near or Far products and goods sought after by western European buyers as well as by mighty Arab princes: spices, incense, luxury goods and, sometimes, slaves.
We know that it was to bypass that Arab trade monopoly that the Portuguese searched and found the way to the Cape of Good Hope, and Vasco de Gama reached India in The two exhibitions testify to this trade with models of local ships, various products such as gold, lapis, jewels, spices of course, handicrafts, clothes, furniture, ceramics, glass, etc. If maps were not the first target of these two exhibitions, a number of them were on display; they were indeed an important contribution to the knowledge of the relationship between Western and Eastern Worlds, showing how Arab and European map makers have drawn these distant countries.
Arab map makers were the first, as early as the tenth century, following the legacy of Ptolemy and Constantinople, but also their own knowledge and reports by sailors, merchants, traders, all kinds of dealers or travelers. The limited accuracy of this information led to imprecise representations of these new and remote countries. The main maps exhibited are the following, listed here chronologically not the case in the exhibitions! First, a manuscript map of Ptolemy mid fifteenth century with Ceylon and Malaysia.
From the end of the thirteenth century, Mediterranean map makers produced portolan charts in Genoa, Venice and Mallorca, based on their own knowledges but also on the legacy of Arabs for Eastern countries and through oral reports of merchants or travellers. And, overall, the fantastic map of Fra Mauro ca , held in Venice Biblioteca Marciana , here exhibited in a digitalised copy on canvas, at its original size; it is as well a map of the known world of the time, and the equivalent of a book , owing to the numerous texts written on it.
In all cases the drawing of Mediterranean Sea was very accurate, but the maps became more and more imprecise towards the East, for the Indian Ocean and Indonesia, and further more for China e. Cambaluq appears but the outlines of China are unidentifiable in terms of a modern map! For China the exhibitions present a book with maps of the sailing of Zeng He, in the short period when Chinese were interested in discovering the World beginning fifteenth century. Also shown is a plan of Venice by Piri Reis and Tunisian maps of Al Sharfi , with the Mediterranean Sea drawn very accurately, copied from European portolan charts, and Eastern countries well described but, as on Fra Mauro's map, with a schematic drawing and many explanatory texts.
And to conclude, the well known, so called, Christopher Colombus map giving birth to the idea of the discovery of a new World , when he was searching for a new course, by the West, to reach the Indian Ocean, already an old World and known for a long time!
Gardens, Knowledge and the Sciences in the Early Modern Period
These two exhibitions have shown, among a large number of various documents, some very important old maps, all telling the story of these Aventuriers des mers sailing and trading in the Red Sea, the Persian Gulf, the Indian Ocean with the Monsoon winds, the eastern African coasts and, far away, up to Indonesia and China, calling at Aden, Ormuz, Sofala, Calicut, Canton , and so on, all ports arousing dreams and hopes of enrichment in the mind of the men of these times.

Born a traveller, Malala Andrialavidrazana is a visual artist with a background in architecture. Her research is interested by notion of barriers and interactions within cross-cultural contexts. She digs behind scenes in a succession of back and forth between private spaces and global issues to explore social imaginaries, primarily through the photographic medium.
Gradually, she invents a language whose approach is resolutely turned toward History but whose engagement in the City remains active. With a subtle hint of anthropological fieldwork, examining the in-between space in a multitude of heres and nows, her visual compositions open up the possibility of alternative storytelling.

Back in his studio, he spent months more pasting together hundreds of images cut from his printed yes, printed contact sheets. Today we reveal a selection of Ministry of Defence maps being put on public display for the first time, which were used as part of official college exams in the s and s.
These fascinating maps show fictional scenarios such as a nuclear explosion fall-out in Scotland and southern England reimagined as a battlefield, reflecting the political uncertainties of the 20th century. Also revealed today is a little-known map of the USA produced by the Nazi government in showing percentages of first and second generation immigrants from middle and western Europe. Designed to enable officials in Joseph Goebbels' Propaganda Ministry to see at a glance where there were significant concentrations of people with German-Austrian backgrounds — and thus potential supporters - the map is evidence of the power of cartography during the 20th century as devices which were able to exercise considerable influence through their appearance of scientific objectivity.
The exhibition will also uncover the fascinating story of how maps left the hands of the few and became everyday objects for the first time in the 20th century. It has to be one of the best exhibitions of No fewer than eighty masterpieces are waiting for you at M - Museum Leuven's unique and extraordinary exhibition: In Search of Utopia. It is inspired by Thomas More, the humanist, statesman and author of the book Utopia, an iconic work that was first published in Leuven exactly years ago by the printer Dirk Martens. The desire and search for Utopia resulted in a wave of creative highpoints in painting, tapestry weaving, mapmaking and the development of scientific instruments.
All the great masters of Thomas More's day will be represented by masterpieces from their oeuvres. There will even be a showpiece from the collection of Queen Elisabeth II! But In Search of Utopia will also take you back to the sixteenth century to reflect on the current realities of Thursday: Closed on Wednesdays, 25 December and 1 January. Entry fee: EUR To commemorate this historic event, the exhibition will explore the different representations of Australia. Alongside the VOC's historical maps of Australia's coast, drawn by Dutch cartographers in the 17th and 18th centuries, are striking depictions of the country in contemporary art works of Aboriginal artists that are derived from thousands of years of traditions.
Er was eens een tijd … dat nabije en verre gebieden ontdekken ver weg stond van een enkele druk op de knop naar Google Earth. Ambachtslui of kunstenaars graveerden dan deze informatie in platen. Er was dus eens een Tijd en Plaats… In de 16de eeuw werden immers in onze Lage Landen de eerste moderne kaarten geproduceerd: wetenschappelijk opgetekend, door specialisten vakkundig in koperplaten gegraveerd en met de nieuwste technieken gedrukt.
De hegemonie van de Vlaamse en daarna Hollandse cartografen duurde meer dan een eeuw. Hun bijdrage was een absolute condito sine qua non in de ontwikkeling van deze bedrijvigheid. En toch er is meer: hun commercie werd bovendien gekleurd met een pittig kunstrandje. Kaarten en atlassen werden gegeerde stukken voor de gestelde burgerij. Tijd dus voor een Terugblik… De Warandepoort organiseert van 7 oktober tot 7 januari een unieke en gevarieerde tentoonstelling die het meesterschap van de kaartenmakers uit onze contreien etaleert. Onder de titel Vlaamse en Hollandse atlascartografie - Deel I: De Glorieuze Nederlanden worden meer dan 60 interessante en authentieke atlasstukken getoond.
Meer dan de moeite waard! Praktisch: de expo kan bezocht worden tijdens de openingsuren van De Warandepoort. Een gids van de tentoonstelling ligt te koop aan de balie. Gouden tijd van de Zuidelijke Nederlanden [The birth of capitalism. A practical man, an enterprising man. A critical man, who is no longer satisfied with what the church and nobility wants him to believe. This enterprising man wants to see and believe things for himself. He wants to discover a world, create, produce and innovate. In order to become rich. Greed, gluttony, lust and laziness stand between the enterprising man and his place in heaven.
Yet, in a world where everything is for sale, one can also invest in the hereafter. The enterprising man exchanges gold for indulgences and relics, venerates images — and falls down.

Organisation: Bodleian Libraries, University of Oxford A selection of Elizabethan travel books and rare maps will be on display at the Bodleian Libraries to mark the th anniversary of the death of Oxford geographer Richard Hakluyt Hakluyt was an influential writer and editor whose works promoted exploration, commerce and the colonization of North America.
He is also considered to be the first to lecture in modern geography at the University of Oxford. Visitors can learn more about Hakluyt and his legacy at the small free display, titled The World in a Book: Hakluyt and Renaissance Discovery , which is open at the Weston Library from 22 October to 23 December Elizabethan England was the great age of exploration and discovery, a time when Sir Francis Drake became the first Englishman to circumnavigate the globe and when the English colonization of North America first took place. The book is an edited collection of English travels throughout the world ranging from voyages in the fourth century to the exploits of Sir Francis Drake, Sir Walter Raleigh and other maritime heroes of Elizabethan England.
Hakluyt's great compendium was celebrated by the Victorian Oxford historian, J. Froude, as 'the prose epic of the modern English nation' and is considered one of the most important collections of travel writing ever published. Hakluyt's works were a fertile source of material for his contemporary, William Shakespeare.
Other highlights of the display include the first Mercator projection world map printed in England. The Mercator projection was designed in by Flemish cartographer Gerardus Mercator to help sailors navigate the world, and is still recognisable as one of the most widely used map projections. The display will also include the famous Codex Mendoza , an Aztec pictorial manuscript from Mexico that was once owned by Hakluyt, and one of the few surviving copies of Hakluyt's first book, Divers Voyages , which encouraged English colonial settlement in North America.
Hakluyt studied at Christ Church, Oxford from to After graduating he became a fellow of Christ Church and gave public lectures in geography. He writes in The Principal Navigations [ He also translated, edited or encouraged the publication of 25 other travel books during his lifetime. On 28 October , Dr William Poole of New College will give a free public lecture at the Weston Library about the books that heralded the Elizabethan era of exploration, discovery and expansion. The lecture, which takes place at The event is free but tickets must be reserved in advance. Christ Church Library is also hosting a free exhibition titled Hakluyt and Geography in Oxford — , which runs until 21 January There is also a two-day academic conference, titled Richard Hakluyt and the Renaissance Discovery of the World, taking place 24 — 25 November The conference, which is jointly hosted by the Bodleian Libraries and Christ Church, will feature talks by 20 international experts on Hakluyt and early modern travel and exploration.
At the conclusion of the conference on 25 November , there will be a free public lecture by broadcaster and historian Michael Wood, titled Voyages, Traffiques, Discoveries. The lecture, which is sponsored by the Hakluyt Society, will take place at the University of Oxford's Examination Schools at No registration is required. Venue: Biblioteca Casanatense, Via S. The idea behind this exhibition was to temporarily recreate a large Lafreri-style map atlas using maps from the collections of the Association's members.
The result of this undertaking is a set of 74 maps selected to represent the best examples of cartographic masterpieces published in Rome or Venice between and This period in time captures the heart of the Golden Age of the Cartography during the Italian Renaissance.
These maps, including some wall maps, begin with world maps, continue with maps of the continents Africa, Asia, Americas, Europe , then with maps of European Countries, maps of regions of Italy, and finally, with some bird's-eye views of Italian cities. These maps often represent the only known surviving example or exist only in a few museums or libraries in the world. And, in most cases, these maps are only available for study to a few eminent scholars and therefore inaccessible to the general public.
The contents of the exhibition have been brought together in a richly illustrated page catalogue. One of the principal goals of the Association is to promote the diffusion and knowledge of historical maps and antique prints. By organizing this exhibition of Monumenta Cartographica , the Association hopes to open up this fascinating world not only to collectors, academics and researchers, but also to the general public.
In fact, both the exhibition and the catalogue were curated with the general public in mind with details on the technical aspects of mapmaking, explanations of the story that each map is telling as well as its historical context. The exhibition continues outside the Palazzo del Podesta, in the Tassiana Room of the Public Library Angelo Mai, where it is exhibited for the first time a rediscovered treasure: it is a precious Lafrery Atlas of maps of the sixteenth century, traced in True works of art, they are highlighted by innovative knowledge technologies.
