Imago Mundi is a peer-reviewed academic journal established in 1935 by Leo Bagrow.[1][2] It is the only English-language scholarly periodical exclusively covering the history of early maps, cartography, and map-related ideas. The full-length articles are in English and have abstracts in French, German, Spanish, and English. Each volume also contains three reference sections (book reviews, bibliography, and chronicle) that provide a summary of current developments in the field.
