Exhibit: Visualizing Place — Maps from The Bancroft Library

Visualizing Place: Maps from The Bancroft Library highlights

the Library’s diverse and extensive map holdings. Selected

from across Bancroft’s collections, these works chart the

evolution of cartography from the early printed atlas born

during the period of European contact to contemporary

maps displaying cultural, social, and imaginary narratives—

from those that show California as an island to those that

help us examine a place, be it a city, a region, or a nation.

Whether printed, hand drawn, or digitally produced, maps

help us understand our own neighborhoods, our broader

region, and our global environment. There is no right way to

look at a place in time, but, together, these map selections

allow us to visualize the familiar through a different lens.
