The Globe, journal of the Australian and New Zealand Map Society,  (www.anzmaps.org<http://www.anzmaps.org>) is seeking a reviewer for the following two new titles:

"Mapping Shakespeare's world" by Peter Whitefield, Bodleian Library, Oxford.

208 pages | 110 color plates | 8 1/4 x 9 3/4 | © 2015

How much did the Bard and his contemporaries know about the foreign lands his characters often inhabit? What expectations did an audience have if the curtains rose on a play which claimed to take place in ancient Troy or the Pyrenean kingdom of Navarre in northern Spain? Mapping Shakespeare's World explores these questions with surprising results. Whitfield suggests answers to such questions as where Illyria was located, why The Merry Wives of Windsor could only have taken place in Windsor, and how two utterly different comedies-The Comedy of Errors and Pericles, Prince of Tyre-both came to take place in ancient Ephesus.


"Voyage to New Holland and round the world", by Capt. James Colnett, RN, ed. by G.A. Mawer
Rosenberg, Sydney, 2016. 112pp.
This is the journal of Colnett's last voyage, to Sydney, in 1802-3.

If interested in reviewing either of these titles for us, please contact me off-list.
