Dealing with the relationship between the places of England and depictions of those places in maps and literature, "Maps and Memory In Early Modern England" examines the way contemporary maps are useful to understanding literary works of the time. Spenser's "Faerie Queene," Shakespeare's "Cymbeline," Jonson's "To Penshurst," city comedy, and other genres of literature of the city are examined alongside maps and contemporary documents about these areas. In this literature, maps and mapping conventions are used in the service of memory and memorialization of the places of England and of England's place in the early modern world.

'Overall I found Maps and Memory stimulating and rewarding reading, and will certainly be adding it to reading lists...It provides a wealth of fresh insight on canonical texts associated with geography, and broadens the range in their cartographic-cultural context, in particular extending the reach of work to date on gender and geography.' - Jess Edwards, Early Modern Literary Studies 'Sanford's overall achievement here lies in underlining the importance of the spatial paradigm to contemporary literature and culture, and in signalling the need for close investigation of its consequences.' - Society of Cartographers
