In April of 2020, after nearly twenty years of planning, writing, and editing, The History of Cartography Volume Four: Cartography in the European Enlightenment (University of Chicago Press) appeared. A massive reference work of 1651 pages, it comprises 479 entries with 954 full color illustrations, written by 207 contributors from 26 countries. In this webinar series, Co-Editors Matthew Edney (University of Southern Maine) and Mary Pedley (Clements Library) enjoy three conversations about the design, contents, and illustrations of this volume.

In session 1, Pedley and Edney discuss the design and rationale for the encyclopedia format of the volume and the challenges and benefits of this structure.

Mary Sponberg Pedley is the Adjunct Assistant Curator of Maps at the Clements Library. Her research has focused on French and English map makers and map production in the long eighteenth century.

Matthew H. Edney holds the Osher Chair in the History of Cartography at the University of Southern Maine and is the Director of the History of Cartography Project, University of Wisconsin-Madison.
