Geography in classical antiquity by Daniela Dueck( )

18 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What were the limits of knowledge of the physical world in Greek and Roman antiquity? How far did travellers get and what did they know about far-away regions? How did they describe foreign countries and peoples? How did they measure the earth, and distances and heights on it? Ideas about the physical and cultural world are a key aspect of ancient history, but until now there has been no up-to-date modern overview of the subject. This book explores the beginnings and development of geographical ideas in Classical antiquity and demonstrates technical methods for describing landscape, topographies and ethnographies. The survey relies on a variety of sources: philosophical and scientific texts but also poems and travelogues; papyrological remains and visual monuments."--

Space in the Roman world : its perception and presentation by Richard J. A Talbert( Book )

9 editions published in 2004 in English and German and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How was space perceived and presented in the Roman world? While it is tempting to assume that any modern historical atlas, with its maps of "the world as the Romans saw it", gives a sufficient answer to these questions, recent research has suggested that the issue is more complex than this. To follow up such questions in more detail, the five original contributions to this volume, by leading experts from Britain, Germany, the United States, and Switzerland, discuss the tradition of scientific geography, Roman itinerary literature, and the Tabula Peatingeriana."--Jacket

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 'Artemidorus Papyrus" (P.Artemid.), first published in 2008, is potentially the most significant new discovery in recent years for a range of fields within Classics: the history of drawing in the Greco-Roman world and more generally issues in the history of art, the history of ancient mapping, and the history of geographical writing in Hellenistic Egypt. Its spectacular and unprecedented collection of images and texts has been the subject of lively and impassioned debate." "At a recent conference at St. John's College, Oxford, an international panel of scholars discussed the artefact, the images, the map and the texts on the papyrus. The volume collects contributions by Gianfranco Adornato, Margarethe Billerbeck, Luciano Canfora, Gideon Nisbet, Dirk Obbink, Peter Parsons, Richard Talbert, Martin West, Nigel Wilson, and the editors."--BOOK JACKET
