Toponyms on Portolan Charts, 1300-1600

SHD member Tony Campbell, at his great site http://www.maphistory.info, has compiled a massive and comprehensive list of the toponyms on portolan charts of between 1300 and 1600.  This great source, with an introduction and various interpretive documents, will aid those researching the exploration and cartography of the first great European Age of Discovery.

For more information, see The Introduction and Abandonment of Toponyms on Portolan Charts, 1300 to 1600.
