Atlas of the world by George Philip & Son( )

42 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 6,975 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Now in its Twelfth Edition, the Atlas of the World distinguishes itself as a trustworthy atlas, with hundreds of full-color maps produced by Europe's finest cartographers. Replete with 67 maps of cities worldwide, charting the key urban centers of each continent from Athens to Wellington, the real success of this reference rests on 176 pages of world maps, providing detailed political and topographical information about every nation on Earth, enhanced by relief shading and layer-colored contours. A 48-page Introduction to World Geography section - illustrated with maps, charts, and graphs - summarizes an abundant number of topics such as climate, plate tectonics, agriculture, population and migration, and global conflicts in a clear, concise fashion. As in past editions the Atlas has been fully updated to reflect the changing world around us." "The Twelfth Edition also boasts several new features. A Geographical Glossary will be an asset to those unfamiliar with foreign terminology. New high-speed rail links are now shown in France and South Korea as well as the full extent of the Trans-Siberian highway, completed in February 2004."--BOOK JACKET
