Whether or not you're a map geek, you will want to buy this book as a gift and then keep it for yourself and not give it away.  Maps are much more than geography - 20th century history and culture can be viewed through its maps, and this is an eclectic, diverse and beautiful collection.  A 1901 map of Jewish East London, the world map of Orwell's 1984, a trench map used by soldiers

in the Somme offensive - and 97 more.
