The Times Atlas is a total adventure. You can wallow, or you can target. It remains one of those prized possessions which even the age of the internet can never upstage. For me, it is a book for all seasons, all ages and all reasons. -- Jon Snow

A new edition of the world's most prestigious and authoritative reference atlas. Since its first edition in 1967 it has sold well over 1 million copies and its detailed and beautifully created mapping represents the perfect blend of tradition, authority and style which set it apart. Presented in an elegant, gold cover and slipcase and printed for the first time on FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) paper. For this new edition, all the maps and detailed thematic information are completely updated with the latest geographical and geo-political changes - these include an estimated 20,000 updates with 3,500 changes to place names alone. There are full updates to the world's states and territories as well as to the geographical information on the world's physical features - now illustrated with the latest satellite imagery.The Atlas also begins with contributions from experts in many geographical fields, providing detailed information on the key issues facing the world today - climate change, environmental threats, global communications, biodiversity and energy resources - with supporting maps, images, photographs and graphics to illustrate the physical world today and man's interaction with it.Finally, the unique scope and breadth of the index - containing entries to over 200,000 places and geographical features - also includes a comprehensive set of alternative spellings for place names and former names, allowing users to easily find what they are looking for. Four years in the making, The Times Comprehensive Atlas of the World is painstakingly researched by a dedicated team of over 50 cartographers from Collins Bartholomew - with changes to the database made every 3 and a half minutes using a 24-hour-a-day news feed. The Atlas is relied on and trusted by governments around the world, international organizations including the UN and European Commission and media companies and both the Collins and The Times atlas ranges have won 10 major cartographic awards over the last 5 years.

Ordered from the The Times.
Came mint, still in original packaging. Although a few years old the Earth is pretty much still the same barring a few country/border changes.
Maps very detailed, good additional info like Economy, Geography and Space section, Fill index and box-type dust cover.
Bought for £10, cover price on item £150...would highly recommend this purchase, high quality Atlas for a tenner? You can't go wrong.
Item delivered on time and as advertised would recommend both product and seller.
5/5...would give it a 6/5 if I could.
If I want to look up a place this is the first reference I turn to.
It says 'Comprehensive Atlas of the World' on the cover and that is exactly what it is.
