Cartographic America: Selections from The J. Kyle Spencer Map Collection
This book is co-authored with David Owings (Columbus State University Archives) to offer the public a glimpse at the extensive collection of early North American maps from the Age of the European Explorers to the late 19th century. The Spencer Map Collection documents the emergence and evolution of the American colonies, specifically Georgia, and the formation of the United States as a whole, ranging from the late 1500s to the late 1800s. Mr. Kyle Spencer generously donated his private map collection to Columbus State University. This book has a two-fold purpose: to extend public history to a larger audience and to use the proceeds to support student programming at the Spencer House in Oxford, England.
