Shakespeare's Worlds in Maps
An Exhibition at the Clements Library, University of Michigan
October 2 - December 22, 2006

The printed cartography of William Shakespeare's lifetime (1564-1616) is the subject of "Shakespeare's Worlds in Maps", a new exhibit at the William L. Clements Library. The exhibit, which will run until December 22, recognizes the visit to the University of Michigan of the Royal Shakespeare Company for performances of Anthony and Cleopatra, Julius Caesar, and The Tempest. The informal display includes examples of maps of the world, the British Isles, the classical world, and the Americas, produced between 1486 and the early 1600s and all drawn from the library’s rich cartographic collection.
