I have some atlas books which are Times, DK,
Oxford(leather binding)and Britannica atlas(1988).
Of course, The Times atlas has most detailed maps and
many place name(about 200,000).
But it is too large and heavy. Also, DK and Oxford.
This completely updated atlas is light and compact
(thin paper, hard cover, 1195g, 28.3 x 23.0 x 2.3cm, 400pages)
but has many useful information and detailed maps for its volume.
So, I always going together with this atlas.
And, I will present this atlas to my father and friend.
The map scales are ;
Most of US and some part of canada 1 ; 4,000,000
Most of Europe 1 : 4,000,000 but Italy, Greece and Balkans 1 : 4,500,000
Caucasus 1 : 4,000,000 Middle East(Israel Iran etc.) 1 : 4,000,000
Persian Gulf 1 : 4,000,000 Korea and a part of Japan 1 : 4,000,000
Southeast Asia 1 : 8,000,000 Philippines 1 : 5,000,000
Most of Africa 1 : 12,000,000 Most of South America 1 : 10,000,000
A Part of Australia 1 : 8,000,000 New Zealand : 1 : 6,000,000
And many many city maps 1 : 1,000,000
But, the atlas needs to update Express way in South Korea.
