This catalogue showcases some of the treasures of the University of Alberta's Map and Special Collections, as well as other U of A Libraries, particularly in terms of resources to aid in the study of the cultures of Medieval and Early Modern Europe. The curators have focused on "facsimiles," and one of the ways to view the exhibit is in terms of the art of the facsimile, from early twentieth-century black-and-white photographs to twenty-first-century colour, digital photographs on CD-ROM. A second theme is ancient book production, from the papyrus roll through the medieval parchment codex, down to the modern printed book. The curators have also considered representations of the world and its inhabitants: humans in their many activities and occupations, animals wild and tame, and monsters that dwelled in those parts of the world just beyond the boundary of the known.

Review:

Published to accompany an exhibition at the Bruce Peel Special Collections Library at the U. of Alberta in 2008, this catalogue features entries that describe 62 medieval manuscripts or maps, with color plates included for many of them. The exhibition featured the best known examples of medieval world maps (mappa mundi) through the display of various high-quality facsimiles in the Bruce Peel Library Collection.
