Erikson Eskimos and Columbus Medieval European Knowledge of America Review There are eighty-six items in Enterlines chronological survey dating from Ptolemys Geographia in the second century to Hans Poulson Resens map of Vinland 1605. These include maps manuscripts books voyages and other events all testifying to the breadth and inclusiveness of Enterlines research. Some will appear more convincing and pertinent than others but together they are marshaled to account for the eventual appearance of North America as a geographical entity separate from Asia... Erikson Eskimos and Columbus is a book worth the serious consideration of scholars interested in late medieval and early Renaissance geography and cartography. John Parker Terrae Incognitae The value of the book is as a source of information on medieval and Renaissance geography and the maps produced by the scholars and navigators of the period... Enterlines questing mind does not neglect problematic information and provides reasoned and balanced interpretations of potentially valuable documents that are ignored by most surveys. For the reader who wishes a comprehensive introduction to a fascinating subject guided by an author with stimulating ideas... this book is vigorously recommended. Robert McGhee The Beaver Canadas History Magazine The author argues that cartographic knowledge of northern America was in fact transmitted by Eskimos to Norsemen in the Middle Ages and early Renaissance and that the result was subsequently incorporated in maps and charts. Enterline supports his theory by convincingly showing that parts of the coastline and contours of islands in northern Europe as shown in early maps and charts conform almost exactly to coastlines of northern America... He has examined pre-sixteenth century cartographic and written evidence such as maps charts and travel reports. He analysed and compared the images and descriptions for proof of early knowledge of the existence of the New World. The author has done this thoroughly and in a professional way... Erikson Eskimos and Columbus is the result of thorough research and the conclusions if perhaps controversial to some have been carefully considered before being written down. Willem F. J. Moerzer Bruyns International Journal of Maritime History Enterline presents a plausible scenario for the transmission of Thule Eskimo and Greenland Norse geographic knowledge into the worldview of late medieval cartographers. His hypothesis will be controversial and it will stimulate scholarly debate for many years to come. It is almost certainly too extreme in its claims but it also probably contains a significant core of truth. The Johns Hopkins University Press is to be congratulated for taking a speculative chance on a speculative book. Sixteenth Century Journal This rather controversial book takes an unusual approach to the question of the sources of geographical information on which pre-Columbian European maps of America were based... While the book is for believers its arguments are interesting and well-presented making it an appropriate addition to most collections. Map and Geography Round Table MAGERT Newsletter Enterlines extensive references are well cited and he notes areas still open to interpretation. The argument proceeds logically from one point to the next and seems to this non-specialist to be soundly based on credible evidence. The writing style is engaging and despite the sometimes abstruse nature of the subject matter keeps the readers interest. Sue Haffner Western Association of Map Libraries WAML Information Bulletin A handsomely made book packed with numerous well-reproduced medieval and early modern maps of the world and the North Atlantic. John A. Agnew International History Review One must look back almost a century to Fridtjof Nansens In Northern Mists 1911 to find a study that probes as deeply into the question of whether representations of pre-Columbian America appeared in European-made maps... The author has provided an invaluable service to historians of discovery geography science cartography the Middle Ages and the Renaissance in bringing all of this information together. Gregory C. McIntosh Imago Mundi Of interest to anyone with a love for maps and history. Northeastern Naturalist James Enterline convinced me when he presented his interpretation of medieval maps of the Arctic region.
