Held in Archives & Research Collections
McMaster University Library
|McMaster University Library is fortunate to possess a rich collection of rare, antique maps. The oldest map in the collection was published in Johannes Reger's edition of Ptolemy's Cosmographia of 1486.
|The collection is an indispensible teaching resource providing students with the opportunity to examine cartography as not just a tool for navigation but as a work of art or an expression of power, cultural worldview and chronicle of scientific advancement.
