Excellent new Times UK Atlas,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Times Atlas of Britain (Hardcover)
This is the first atlas of Britain to be published for more than 40 years (in fact it's really an atlas of the United Kingdom as Northern Ireland is included). It consists of statistical maps on the whole of the UK, examples of historical mapping from the constituent countries of the UK, and two-page county maps which are exceptionally detailed and adopt the clear style of the Times world atlas series. In general between two and four pages are also devoted to historical maps of each county and a description of it with numerous photographs. The atlas copes well with the move from counties to Unitary Authorities in England and still maintains the county basis but with specific texts relating to UAs.
It is good to see that the Times have renewed the tradition of country atlases following on from Saxton's first county atlas in the sixteenth century. This is a high-quality publication well worth buying if you're interested in maps and the UK.
