Once considered a respectable antique map dealer, E. Forbes Smiley spent years doubling as a map thief, until he was finally arrested. The author delves into the untold history of this fascinating high-stakes criminal and the inside story of the industry that consumed him. Blanding has interviewed all the key players in a stranger-than-fiction story, and shares the histories of maps that charted the New World, and how they went from being practical instruments to highly coveted objects.
