    Wow this book is amazingly detailed and incredibly thorough but it is also a bit overwhelming and hard to read If anything it contains too much information making it for me anyway too hard to pull together into cohesive knowledgeIt is not necessarily written in an overly academic way passages of it in isolatio

    This book is an immensely detailed biography It's probably too detailed to be of much interest to a general reader In fact I'm not entirely sure if this book is all that readable outside of an academic setting It appears to be painstakingly re

    Very classic biography with a chronological overview of the live of Mercator Very interesting because of the way he showed Mercator got to his famous projection method and also because Mercator clearly was religiously inspired

  9. says:

    What a good book More than simply a biography of Mercator but also a history of the Low Countries its Renaissance and cartography In a way it has to be as Mercator was rather a passive figure and a uiet family man; and his letters from the first half of his life appear to have been destroyed to protect the innoc

  10. says:

    A thoroughly interesting read Crane's Biography of Mercator is meticulously researched and choke full of details from every aspect of Mercator's life Unfortunately the depth of detail may make this book difficult for the
