THE ROYAL ATLAS OF MODERN GEOGRAPHY. By A. KEITH JOHNSTON, LL.D.
Containing 51 Plates, coloured in outline, with a complete Index to each Map. "Since this fine atlas was issued sixteen years ago it has had no rival in England, and certainly no superior. It was then and is still a credit to British chartography."-Times. "Altogether the new edition is a triumph of knowledge, skilled labour, and liberality."-The World.
"In its present form the Royal Atlas' is worthy of the unique reputation it has enjoyed as a work alike of science and liberality."-Daily News.
".... For amplitude, and so far as we have examined it, for minute accuracy, leaves nothing to be desired."-The Standard.
"This magnificent work has long been the standard English atlas. In the new edition which has just been issued all the maps have been revised up to date, aud two new maps have been added-one of them of great interest and value."-Manchester Guardian.
"No atlas stands higher, or deserves to stand higher, than the 'Royal Atlas."". Liverpool Courier.
"The get-up of the volume is magnificent, and both on the score of beauty and utility it is worthy of the position among atlases which its title claims for it."-The Scotsman. "Externally the atlas is superbly handsome; internally it has claims to accuracy and extent of information, clearness of delineation and printing, beauty of colouring, and finish of workmanship, such as can scarcely be conceded to any work of a similar description."-The Edinburgh Courant.
"Accordingly, in this new edition the maps have undergone revising, and this work has been done with such care that our search for errors has been quite a fruitless one."-The Glasgow Herald.
Dedicated by Special Permission to H.R.H. the Prince of Wales.
THE HANDY ROYAL ATLAS OF MODERN GEOGRAPHY.
Containing 47 Plates, with complete Index, brought up to date.
“Is probably the best work of the kind now published.”—Times.
"Not only are the present territorial adjustments duly registered in all these maps, but the latest discoveries in Central Asia, in Africa, and America have been delineated with laborious fidelity. Indeed, the ample illustration of recent discovery, and of the great groups of dependencies on the British Crown, renders Dr. Johnston's the best of all atlases for English use."-Pall Mall Gazette.
"He has given us in a portable form geography posted to the last discovery and the last revolution."-Saturday Review.
"This is Mr. Keith Johnston's admirable 'Royal Atlas' diminished in bulk and scale, so as to be perhaps fairly entitled to the name of 'handy,' but still not so much diminished but what it constitutes an accurate and useful general atlas for ordinary households."-Spectator.
"Thus we are inclined to give Mr. Alexander Keith Johnston every credit for the production of a handy, and at the same time accurate and excellent Atlas, and bringing within reach of every one the advantages without the buik of his admirable 'Royal Atlas.'"-Examiner.
"The Handy Atlas' is thoroughly deserving of its name. Not only does it contain the latest information, but its size and arrangement render it perfect as a book of reference."-Standard.
"It presents to the public, in a convenient form, and at a very moderate price, a thoroughly accurate Atlas of Modern Geography."—Observer.
