Riassunto: This invaluable Supplement is the result of research by scholars and collectors who have made their work available to Mr. Tooley. The total number of mapmakers dealt with in the Dictionary and the Supplement now approaches the staggering figure of twenty-five thousand. These volumes offer a unique source of information about major as well as lesser known and even obscure workers in the field from all parts of the world. For each individual, the entries contain such essential information as nationality, span of productive years, major works, various addresses, predecessors, and successors. Also contained are many interesting highlights of cartographic history: The first maps of certain countries to appear in an atlas, the first produced by the lithographic process, and first issued in the U.S.A. Devoting his long professional life to this study, Mr. Tooley furnishes resources that allow easy location of basic and otherwise time-comsuming information.
