Mapping in the Enlightenment: Science, Innovation, and the Public Sphere

Cassini Planisphere Cassini Planisphere
This exhibit uses examples from the Clements Library collection to tell the story of creating, distributing, and using maps during the long 18th century. Enlightenment thinking stimulated the effort to make more accurate maps, encouraged the growth of map collecting and map use by men and women in all social classes, and expanded the role of maps in administration and decision-making throughout Europe and her overseas colonies.
