OK - but expected clearer & larger maps,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Penguin Historical Atlas of Ancient Greece (Penguin Historical Atlases) (Paperback)
I purchased this a a means of having a series of maps which I could easily refer to while I was reading associated books. The book was disappointing - the maps were there, but not a legible and large as I had expected. The binding was such that the book could not be made to stay open at the appropriate page without significant weighting down - not good for constant referral and the accompanying text (historical overview) is so general as to be just taking up good map space. After my initial scan though the book, it has remained unopened on my bookshelf.
Good for those wanting a little information on Ancient Greece but not for the serious student
