Compiled and Engraved from the most Authentic Sources under the Supervision of WG Blackie, Ph.D., FRGS.
The Imperial Atlas of Modern Geography: An Extensive Series of Maps embracing the Most Recent Discoveries and Latest Political Divisions of Territory in All Parts of the World.
Blackie and Son, London, 1859. Elephant Folio, 16"" x 12". Brown buckram with leather to corners and spine. Leather corners a little rubbed. Five bands to spine which has gilt lettering. This heavy book has had its binding strengthened internally at some point. The endpapers are smart marbled boards. Contains 100 maps, all present, each spread across a double page with borders shown in colour. First three or four and last couple of maps have some spotting, but not the others as far as I can see. The Atlas proclaims that the 117 page index at the rear contains references to "One Hundred and Twenty Thousand Places". This item is large and heavy and so postage will be extra outwith the United Kingdom - charged at cost. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Matthew Butler Books PBFA [Badminton, United Kingdom]
