British Library published Cities of the World, A History in Maps

Cities of the World, A History in Maps, a new British Library publication by Peter Whitfield, holds up a mirror to sixty-four of the world's greatest cities, and is the first book of its kind to trace their historic form and special character through maps and panoramic views produced over the centuries. Drawing from the British Library's extensive map collection, Cities of the World contains a selection of familiar places such as Rome, Paris, and New York as well as some of the more unusual cities of Isfahan, Palmanova and Karlsruhe
