STiff unmarked book in gleaming blue faux-leather with map to front and gleaming gilt titles; about new. Also a sheaf of maps, with magnifying glass, acetate etc. Both items housed in a matching slipcase with gilt titles, about new. A remarkable book with set of maps in about new condition. ; 19 X 12.50 X 1.70 inches; 292 pages; The National Geographic Society (NGS) has marked its centennial not only by giving the nation a lavishly informative historical atlas (there are more than 100 historical maps, as well as 380 other maps) , but by presenting 35,000 copies to the libraries of secondary schools across the country. More than the television generation will find the atlas diverting and instructive; all Americans, including specialists of every kind, will be caught and taught by it. Thematic sections (e. G. , the land and its people) are presented against a chronology from 1400 to the present. This counterpoint offers a staggering range of visual ways of conceiving of our past. The oldest maps share pages with innovative demographic charts--all surrounded by some 450 photographs and prints which bring the past vividly to life in full NGS color. - Alfred L. Bush, Princeton Univ. Lib. , N. J.
