Abstract

Peter Heylyn penned perhaps the two most influential global descriptive geography books written in English during the 17th century: Microcosmus (1621) and Cosmographie (1652). Each went through multiple editions, ensuring that Heylyn’s impact on the geographical culture of England lasted for the best part of a century. These two books were his best-selling works because of the methodized sophistication of their textual construction and the wide-ranging collation of the writings of the Age of Discovery. - (HC)
