By Ned Middleton HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
The map of the world continues to evolve as new countries emerge. This is especially so with modern Europe in the years since the demise of the Soviet Union and former Yugoslavia. As all travellers and students of geography will know, up-to-date information about any country's boundaries and borders is vital. How else might one visit, say, Dubrovnik, without knowing that that city is now in Croatia and not within the boundaries of a former country which no longer exists.

Whilst all households should possess at least one Atlas of the World, the problems associated with those much larger tomes are generally a price which is often prohibitive and, secondly, there does tend to be no space for such an outsize product on the family bookshelf. Of course, the bigger the atlas, the easier it is to see and appreciate whatever information may be contained on the various maps but in this particular product we find an optimum size which suits all requirements.

Commencing with a 47 page gazetteer of nations in alphabetic order - complete with national flag, there are 96 pages of relief maps by continent, region and country, political maps, 32 pages devoted to world geography and 35,000 place names in an index which also includes local spellings. In short, this product is just about as complete as one might hope to find. As such, it also provides all the background and general information one might require when contemplating a visit or, perhaps in support of one's studies. It will also appeal to those who simply want to know the answer to some vexatious question.

5.0 out of 5 stars Philip's World Atlas. 10 July 2013
By myronuk
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Arrived before time and so no issues. Ordered this as an addition to the Times Universal Atlas (very comprehensive) because the Philips contains less information and so it is easier to identify and follow the maps.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Atlas 17 Jan 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This was bought for a housebound friend who wanted to see where places were that she heard about on the News. She has found it invaluable and we occasionally look at it together saying, "I never knew that this country was next to that one!".....etc. It contains masses of additional information and is helpful with her grandson's homework. A great atlas as you would expect from Philips and a great success as a present for my friend.

Not bought an atlas since school days. My son and girlfriend are going travelling and wanted to keep up with their routes. Great illustrations and easy to read maps. I can't put it down now!
