A Glance into the History of Armenia: Through Cartographic Records is the full-colour catalogue designed to accompany Rouben Galichian's international exhibition of cartographic texts and images of Armenia. The exhibition's aim is to make public a selection of cartographic images in which snippets of the history of Armenia are viewed through the eyes of the Ancient, Greco-Roman, Byzantine, Islamic and Western geographers and cartographers. In ancient and medieval times maps were rare documents, and so in many cases maps depicting significant moments and events in history have not always been available to us. Sometimes historical and political events took place in such quick succession that it was not possible for maps to capture them within their real timescale. Nevertheless, this catalogue sets out to present the sequence of events that have determined the course of Armenian history as far as possible through the maps created around the actual time of their occurrence. The examples depicted here are sourced from major collections of texts, atlases and individual maps created by masters of the craft, and are considered to form an essential part of world cartographic heritage. This volume is the second in the series of which the first volume is Historical Maps of Armenia: Updated and Abridged.
