WPC Map Society meeting October 10, 2015

Saturday, October 10, 2015, at the Wilson Library on the UNC-CH campus.

9:30 am — Meet, greet, coffee

10 am – “America’s First ‘Coloring Book’: Theodor de Bry’s 1590 edition of Thomas Harriot’s Briefe & True Report from the New-Found Land of Virginia”, by Larry Tise

11 am – “Deed Books as Maps: Origins of the 1770 Collett-Churton Map”, by Mark Chilton

12 noon– Lunch (likely box lunch available for prepurchase)*

1 pm – “Carolina Comparative Cartography – Mouzon and Others“, by Jay Lester

2 pm – Event ends.

Before the conference, and/or during lunch, you are invited to view the exhibit, Chronicles of Empire: Spain in the Americas, where De Bry volumes and fine cartographic materials will be on display.

*LUNCH: The most convenient option, if it can be arranged, would be to purchase a box lunch to be provided at the Wilson Library. If you desire this option, contact John Blythe at the Wilson Library to express your interest (blythej@email.unc.edu). Other options include various on campus facilities, some very close to the Wilson Library (http://files.dining.unc.edu/Hours/Fall_2015_Hours.pdf). Restaurants on Franklin Street are another option, though the relatively short lunch break may render that option less viable.

What's on your mind?
