CARTOGRAPHY  
  The Cumberland Maps    
   

A unique collection comprising over 4,500 military maps and documents in the Royal Library, spanning the four centuries from Agincourt to Waterloo. More than campaign documents, the maps can frequently be seen as instruments of propaganda, and all have significance for historians; many are works of art in their own right, by artists such as Stefano della Bella.

   

The collection covers Europe, North Africa, India, North America and the West Indies. Printed chronological and geographical indexes.
