Library Collection Of maps Shows
Slow Progress Of World Knowledge
Early maps, representing the work
o'f the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries,
have been placed on exhibit in the low-
er corridor of the Library. While the
exhibit makes no pretense of com-
pleteness, it does present interesting
specimens of Mappemondes and Am-
erican maps. The maps show, to the
careful observer, how slowly inform-
ation concerning the size, shape and
position of the American continent
A facsimile of the earliest American
map known, that by Juan de la Cosa, a
pilot on the first voyage with Col-
umbus, is shown. The reproduction
was made in Spain. Of local interest
are several 18th century maps of the
Great Lakes region.
The three editions of the works of
Rosaccio could probably not be found
in any other American library. Philip
Cluver. whose geography is shown, was
one of the most famous geographers
of the 17th century. The facsimiles of
early maps are worthy of particular
attention as they give the form in
which most serious students of carto-
graphy use the material.
Among the 16th century maps on dis-
play those by Mercator, Hondius, Or-
telius, de Jode, Munster, Porcacchi and
de Bry are particularly worthy of at-
tention. Indocus Hondius began his
work as an editor of the maps of Ger-
ard Mercator, and prepared the maps
for works by Walter Raleigh, and the
voyages of Drake and Cavendish. Aft-
er his death his, son Henri de Jeune
became a well known geographer.
The great world map of Gerard Mor-
cator, of 1569, is represented by a fac-
simile of one portion representing
Florida and Cuba. Mercator won
fame by his new system of map pro-
jection which is still used today.
Another display of interest is the
volume called Mercurio Geographico,
containing the 1674 world map by San-
son. Maps by his sons and other works
the famous Italian house of Ricci are
also contained in the volume. The
Frand Atlas Universel, by Robert de
Vaugondy, the famous royal geograph-
er, is likewise displayed.
The geography book by Nicolas de
Fer, in which both text and maps are
printed from copper plates, is shown.
Maps by Homann and the Homann
heirs, published in Germany about the
same time are included in the 18th
Another interesting map is the Or-
telius atlas, a product of the famous
Plantin press at Antwerp. Gerard de
Jode's atlas of 1578, is on display. This,
with the Mercator and Ortelius, came
to the University from one of its grad-
uates; W. C. >1urphy, who acted as
American consul at Frankfort.

asm among the girls and to get some

Student Upholds Foreign Customus
In her talk on "India" at the ves-
per services Wednesday afternoon,
Asha Latika Haldar, grad., furnished
several surprises for her audience. In-
stead of seeming to apologize for the
customs of her people, which perhaps
to some of the customs of our coun-
try. She criticized what to her is our
formalism, shown in our tendency to
judge people and nations by their ex
terior qualities rather than their stan-
dards and idea;;.
