Another fine review of Edson’s Buondelmonti

Evelyn Edson’s edition and translation of Cristoforo Buondelmonti’s Description of the Aegean and Other Islands has received another fine review, by Emmanouil Michailou, in the latest issue of Imago Mundi. “…All can enjoy this well-produced book and get ensnared by Buondelmonti’s maps and descriptions of the major islands of the Western world. Map historians in particular will be grateful to Evelyn Edson for her wonderful exposition of Cristoforo Buondelmonti’s pioneering creation. Isolarii still play an important role in the growing research of cartography and having such an accessible example on ones own desk is a privilege.” Please check this review out.
