    A Mapmaker's Dream

    By: James Cowan

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    Meditations of Fra Mauro.

    A multilayered journey around the world and across time, where an antique map - with sea serpents devouring ships and fair winds blowing out of cherubs' mouths - belong. James Cowan tells the farthest-flung adventure story through the eyes of a monk who never leaves his own cell.

    Based on the journal of Fra Mauro, a monk from Venice during the Renaissance; a specialist in cartography, a mapmaker who devoted much of his life to drawing what he hoped might be a definitive map of the world. A man who sought knowledge from the farthest corners of the world while remaining firmly ensconced in his own.
