The History of Cartography (Online)

From the newsletter of ANZMapS:

"The first two volumes of the defining work, The History of Cartography, are now freely available online.

That means four physical volumes, with the hope that the two-part Volume 3 may follow in the future.

The University of Chicago Press has broken the text down into the separate chapters, presented as a series of 104 pdfs.
Not only can you search and download individual chapters, you can also search across the four volumes.

This is a major initiative, for which the publishers must be thanked and congratulated."

The museum I work for has purchased the books. The printed ones are really nice but I do believe someone does need a free version.
