Maps of Iceland

Antique Maps of Iceland 1482 - 1850


Maps of Iceland tells the story of how Iceland appeared on printed maps. The starting date is 1482 when the country appeared in the Ulmm publication of Ptolemy's Geographica. The book traces the increase in interest and corresponding knowledge about Iceland and the far North. A region, which at the time was associated with mystique and danger. It tells of great maps of the Dutch Golden Age of Mapmaking and the different ways in how the country was depicted, using scientific methods of mapping based on accurate measurements. The narrative draws to a close around 1850, the the advent of the first modern detailed map of Iceland.
