"A capital atlas of maps clearly printed in colours, and at the very low price of one guinea. The maps are not only ancient, modern and historical, out of the Northern and Southern Constellations, and of the Planetary System - indeed, all that can be wanted in an ordinary library. This excellent book meets with our hearty approval." - The Publishers' Circular, August 3, 1875, p.526. All maps in colour with with many hinged to fold out.
