Hailed as "extraordinary" (NEW YORK TIMES) when it debuted, the ATLAS OF THE WORLD has now undergone its most significant revision ever, with sixteen added pages of world maps. In addition, the index has been updated, the thematic section includes the latest statistical information, and five maps of Europe are derived from a digital database. 4-color maps throughout.
Fair. Good copy for reading, may have heavy page wear with writing textual notes highlighting or be an heavily used ex library copy with library markings, stickers or stamps. Dust jacket or accessories may not be included.
Paying less than $3.00 for this, I expected a mis-used book in tatters. What a pleasant surprise. The atlas is in mint condition, used only "in-house" at a school library. I realized why the postage was costly when I first held it. Huge and heavy. The maps are detailed and large, and the book contains many pages of world facts. Highly recommended.

Excellent European Atlas
The atlas was written by europeans and does not give good inofrmation on the individual USA states. For the rest of the world it is very good.

What a Bargain
I bought a used library copy of this atlas and it is great. It is one of those huge books in the reference section of the library. It had maps of every thing imaginable. We love to travel and this is a great resource to have at home to chart our travels. The packaging was damaged during shipping so it took a really long time to arrive. It's a really heavy book and it was shipped in a thin cardboard envelope, but the book was unharmed.

Very usefull atlas
Atlas of the World by Oxford University Press is a great opportunity for adults and children to find out more about our home - Earth. Special maps and diagramms are great. I reccomed this book for every family.
