From the beginning of the sixteenth century, when Europeans first understood that there was a western North America, through the next four centuries, the nature of the American West was slowly revealed to Europeans and then Euro-Americans. Chris Lane will discuss how that gradual unveiling has been graphically depicted in printed maps over the years. Chris Lane is proprietor of the Philadelphia Print Shop West in Cherry Creek and has appeared as an appraiser of old maps and prints on the Antiques Road Show.
