Notes and Comments on the Composition of Terrestrial and Celestial Maps is a historically significant work on modern map projections and their mathematical underpinnings. The original German edition introduced several distinct map projections still in use today and revealed the cartographic genius of author J.H. Lambert (1728-77). In 1972, on the 200th anniversary of this seminal work, noted geographer Waldo R. Tobler published an English translation of Lambert's writings, but it has been unavailable for several years. This new edition of the translation includes an expanded preface and reference section and a new biographical sketch of J.H. Lambert.
