This is an unmarked, seemingly unread copy, tight, square and clean. VG; "This book is an attempt to illustrate and trace the origins of the most characteristic geographical ideas current in Western Europe at the height of the Middle Ages. Historians of geography have tended to neglect this period partly because of the dramatic appeal of the great Age of Discovery which was immediately to follow. It should be remembered, however that, small as the known world was during the Middle Ages and naive as may have been men's conceptions of it, medieval learning was none the less the central element in the scholarly background of the Age of Discovery.". The gilt on the spine is dulled, the head and heel of the spine are lightly worn, corners softly bumped, else VERY GOOD. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. (xxi),563 pp
