The finest reference world atlas produced to date. 27 Aug. 1996
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The comprehensive edition of the Times atlas of the world
has been regarded by many as the finest reference atlas ever
made. It has become a standard work of reference for decades
now. The latest edition, the ninth, appeared in 1993 as a
heavy single volume with a gleaming black cover, with a
reprint with revisions released in 1994.
The 123 plates are produced by the renowned Edinburgh (now
Glasgow) cartographers of Bartholomew. The plates are
characterized by sublime use of color, amazing accuracy,
a balanced use of various scale sizes and projections. The
various typefaces are sometimes so romantic that legibility
suffers from it as a consequence.
The atlas is mainly a set of world maps, without many
thematic sections. This focus results in the largest world
atlas index available to date: well over 210,000 entries,
where each entry comes with its longitude + latitude coords;
this makes this atlas the ideal reference work for names all over
the world. The world is mapped at essentially

A required book for EVERY home 6 May 1997
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
No one claiming to be literate or interested in the world around them can be without this book. Parents of school age children should place this Atlas at the top of their list in aquiring volumes to improve their child's education. It should be within easy hand's reach.

No one interested in world events, history or geography can afford to deny themselves the pleasure of its magnificent plates and charts. This is a required investment in knowledge.

By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I was chillin with my homies, when one of 'em brought me a Times Comprehensiv' Atlas of the World. I'm like, "What you doin' Chiller, bringin' me some old folks huge map thingy?" And he was like, "Yo yo yo, calm down, it's a happening atlas dude, so crack it open!" So like I did and I'm like TIDAL WAVE of information, overload, overload! There was info on every country I know and then some. So I just want to say, don't be all, "Oh look, another dopey atlas gramps got me instead of a dirt bike," This atlas kicks!

The Times Atlas of the World is probably the finest and most comprehensive atlas that has ever been published. I purchased a copy of the ninth edition on March, 1994 and have really enjoyed it ever since.
