Philippine Cartography 1320-1899
In this landmark history of Philippine maps and their cartographers, National Artist Carlos Quirino recounts how the concept of the Philippines emerged in the late 16th century as a nebulous speck in the Pacific Ocean and evolved over four centuries into its current iconography. First published in 1959, this edition showcases more than 120 maps from various collections in the Philippines, a comprehensive bibliography of Philippine maps, and an introduction by map collector and scholar Dr. Leovino Ma. Garcia.
