‘Geographie and Chronologie I may call the Sunne and the Moone, the right eye and the left, of all history’ In The World of Gerard Mercator, Andrew Taylor chronicles both the story of a great astronomer and mathematician, who was condemned to death as a heretic, and the history of that most fascinating conjunction of science and art: the drawing of maps.
