(From the publisher):
In sixteenth-century Venice, a monk struggles to create the perfect map of the world - without ever leaving his cell. Travelers bring him tales of faraway, fantastic people and places; the map takes on many dimensions and grows. Slowly, Fra Mauro's vision begins to embrace not only continents and kingdoms but something just as wondrous and real: a vast interior landscape of beliefs, aspirations, and dreams...
Original title: A Mapmaker's Dream: The Meditations of Fra Mauro, Cartographer to the Court of Venice
