Librarians Association of UC Riverside Program Committee presents,

Is California an Island?

 

with Manuel Urrizola, UCR Librarian

 

In the early 1600's California began appearing on maps as an island. This presentation explores the various theories which try to explain this geographical misconception. During our exploration we will briefly touch upon the history, printing, and collecting of antique maps. See the bibliography.
