Our critically acclaimed smash hit Cartographies of Time is now available in paperback. In this first comprehensive history of graphic representations of time, authors Daniel Rosenberg and Anthony Grafton have crafted a lively history featuring fanciful characters and unexpected twists and turns. From medieval manuscripts to websites, Cartographies of Time features a wide variety of timelines that in their own unique ways, curving, crossing, branching, defy conventional thinking about the form. A fifty-four-foot-long timeline from 1753 is mounted on a scroll and encased in a protective box. Another timeline uses the different parts of the human body to show the genealogies of Jesus Christ and the rulers of Saxony. Ladders created by missionaries in eighteenth-century Oregon illustrate Bible stories in a vertical format to convert Native Americans. Also included is the April 1912 Marconi North Atlantic Communication chart, which tracked ships, including the Titanic, at points in time rather than by their geographic location, alongside little-known works by famous figures, including a historical chronology by the mapmaker Gerardus Mercator and a chronological board game patented by Mark Twain. Presented in a lavishly illustrated edition, Cartographies of Time is a revelation to anyone interested in the role visual forms have played in our evolving conception of historyi i aquot;1 a#39;E³ ..11 mlb-fw- aquot;aquot; um _f E½...aquot; .Inl-quux: a#39;M_a#39; EiE½Ec E½Ed Ea Am N‡ q y .Er-NŒ E¼N‹N‚a€œ: .... __..g.-. _._p.-- Al.-.Ar_-HAlAm..-a. -NŒ._NŒEd._. a€œaquot;a€œIrzmizh-f* L a€œAna€ .funn HAr a#39;HfAŸ u.. ia#39; N† l ` a#39;| E¼ A¹a#39; a#39;huna#39; Ei-N‘- 1416-71-01 aquot;EŸ F i a#39;_ *_ I e., Eia#39;EiN‚-E½E²-E½-N‹EiNŒN‡Ei | EiEcEcN‚-N‡EcEi a€œE˜?a€ aquot;NˆN‚-_- a€žE¼N‹.
