About this Item

66 p. illustrations, maps. Some illustrations in color. Endnotes. Membership form laid in. Thomas F. Sander retired from the Army as a Colonel in 1996 after 30 years of distinguished service. He then started 19 years, and still counting, of volunteering his services to the history of discoveries and cartographic community. Tom has served as of the Washington Map Society Vice-President in 2000-2001 and President 2001-2002. He has been editor of The Portolan: the Journal of the Washington Map Society since 1997. As editor, Tom changed the thrice-yearly The Portolan from a black-and-white, to a multi-colored publication, increasing its size from approximately 40 pages in each issue to 80 pages. Founded in 1979, The Washington Map Society is a United States based organization supporting map collecting, and the history, science and art of cartography. The Society (or WMS) has about 400 members drawn from throughout the United States with about 50 members. About 60% live outside the Washington DC, Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia radius, confirming the importance of our journal, The Portolan, and the WMS E-newsletter. WMS advances its goals by convening periodic speaker events, organizing field trips, publishing a cartographic journal (The Portolan) three times yearly, and by annually sponsoring the Ristow Prize competition recognizing research achievement in cartographic history. Very good. No dust jacket. Cover has slight wear and soiling. Bookseller Inventory # 71798
