PLATE 36. Map of the World, by Petrus Apianus. printed 1530. From the original in the BritishMuseum.2
WITHOUT THE ROUSED INTEREST and cordial co-operation of many people this collectionof representations of the Earth and its relation to the Universe would have been impossible.For permission to use copyright material I am indebted to D. Appleton and Company, theClarendon Press, the Cambridge University Press, Cassell & Co., Ltd., Gall and Inglis, theGuiding Star Publishing House, the Kosmon Press, Luzac & Co., Marshall Jones Company,Macmillan & Co., Ltd., Popular Astronomy, Frederick A.

Gardner, Miss Mary Elizabeth Litchfield, Mrs.Richard Folkard, and Mrs. Daniel G. Brinton. For assistance in tracing material I owe thanks tovarious members of the staffs of the Metropolitan Museum, the Museum of the AmericanIndian, Heye Foundation, the Museum of the Hispanic Society of America, the Museum of theUniversity of Pennsylvania, the American Geographical Society, the Swedenborg Library ofthe Church of the New Jerusalem, Brooklyn, the New York Society Library, and the New YorkPublic Library. In various translations I was aided by Dr. Arthur Livingston of ColumbiaUniversity, and by an unknown member of the staff of the Biblioteca Nacional de Habana. Mr.Andrew Dasberg gave valuable suggestions in the choice and arrangement of various figuresand plates. Special thanks are due Mrs. Mabel Reber without whose researches throughnumberless volumes this book would have lacked many of the representations it contains.Special thanks are also due many members of the staff of the New York Public Library inwhich most of these figures of Earth and the Universe were collected.EDNA KENTONSeptember, 1928New York3
