Dear subscribers to Lis-maps:

This thrice-yearly journal with articles on maps, the history of cartography, and exploration is the only journal of its kind in the Americas.   Below is information on the Winter 2018 issue recently published and mailed.   See http://www.washmapsociety.org/TPJ2.htm   for details on ordering the current or past issues of “The Portolan”.  That link also takes the reader to the contents list of all back issues and an index to those issues.  The focus of the society and the journal is not solely Washington; topics are widespread in scope. 

"THE PORTOLAN": JOURNAL OF THE WASHINGTON MAP SOCIETY
ISSUE 103 (WINTER 2018)
--------------------------------------------------------------
Issue 103 (Winter 2018), consisting of 84 pages, was published in November 2018 and has been distributed to all paid subscribers and print-issue members in good standing of the Washington Map Society.  Copies are available for purchase.

FREDRIC SHAUGER examines many of Boazio’s maps.  CRAIG CLINTON highlights the pictorial map art of Antoncich. DON McGUIRK describes early map depictions of the US flag.  DENNIS REINHARTZ describes his discovery of an original copperplate of Herman Moll.  ROD LYON relates that numerous previously unknown maps of Monaco are now being found in European institutions.  BERT JOHNSON provides a preview of what is known thus far about the ICHC 2019 meeting in Amsterdam.  BERT also summarizes activities at the ISHM meeting in Portland, Maine last summer.  A relatively new journal is reviewed. And there is more.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
"The Portolan" is published three times per year; issue 104 is due for release in late March 2018.
