About the Authors
  • Arthur Robert Hinks (1873–1945) was a renowned British astronomer and geographer. First published in 1944, as the fifth edition of a 1913 original, this book was written by Hinks to provide a general introduction to the study of maps and the surveying processes through which they are made. The text begins with a brief history of early maps, before moving through various types of modern map and methods of surveying. Numerous illustrative figures are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of cartography and geography.
