"A monument of laborious research and acute and lucid criticism".
"The work is perhaps most famous for its series of attractive and finely detailed maps of the Near East, the Mediterranean and Africa by John Walker, engraver to the admiralty. These include two maps of the world according to Herodotus, maps of Western Scythia, Hellespont, Bosporus, Babylon, Egypt, Memphis, Libya, the circumnavigation of Africa by the Egyptians under Pharaoh Necho (610-595 BC), and the voyage of Hanno the Navigator (500 BC), a major discovery in west Africa and one of the earliest voyages to traverse the Pillars of Hercules in an attempt to extend maritime discovery beyond the Mediterranean. James Rennell (1742-1830) was on of the foremost cartographers of his generation and a key pioneer of oceanography. After spending several years conducting an ambitious and extensive mapping project for the East India Company in Bengal and other parts of the Indian subcontinent, Rennell returned to England and dedicated himself to historical and cartographical scholarship. Elected to the Royal Society in 1781, he was awarded the prestigious Copley Medal ten years later (previously awarded to Captain Cook in 1776 for his study on the alleviation of scurvy) and in 1830 became one of the founding members of the Royal Geographical Society."
