In April of 2020, after nearly twenty years of planning, writing, and editing, The History of Cartography Volume Four: Cartography in the European Enlightenment (University of Chicago Press) appeared. A massive reference work of 1651 pages, it comprises 479 entries with 954 full color illustrations, written by 207 contributors from 26 countries. In this webinar series, Co-Editors Matthew Edney (University of Southern Maine) and Mary Pedley (Clements Library) enjoy three conversations about the design, contents, and illustrations of this volume.
Mary Sponberg Pedley is the Adjunct Assistant Curator of Maps at the Clements Library and co-editor with Matthew Edney of The History of Cartography Volume Four: Cartography in the European Enlightenment. Her research has focused on French and English map makers and map production in the long eighteenth century.
