The European Mapping of Early New England
If you like maps, here's an opportunity to see some rare early maps in the Museum's Archives and Special Collections. Our guest is Matthew Edney, Osher Professor in the History of Cartography and director of the History of Cartography Project at the University of Maine. He plans to discuss early representations of European exploration and North American colonization with a look at historical maps and the cartographic shaping of New England during the 17th and 18th centuries. We will have examples from Museum’s collection of maps depicting New England from the 16th to the 20th centuries. In the Fleet Room. $10 for the lecture; Museum admission is not required.
