The Daily Telegraph Victory Atlas of the World

£150.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Published 1920 for the Daily Telegraph newspaper by "Geographia" Ltd, Fleet Street, London. Hardback. Green cloth board covers with gilt lettering on front and spine. Considerable wear to the covers includes: front cover bowed; corners bumped; damp stains to base of spine; a tear near the top of the spine; fading and scuff marks. However, given the extent of this external damage, the inside pages are in surprisingly good condition. Each double-page map is clean and the colours remain bright. The binding is still secure. Contains a series of 150 plates containing over 450 maps and diagrams "compiled from the latest and most authentic sources." 284pp.

Edited by Alexander Gross, FRGS, this atlas offers a fascinating snapshot of the world a century ago, immediately after the end of the First World War. It shows a changed Europe but a colonial world that is still largely intact. Germany is partly occupied by the victorious Allies, new countries like Yugoslavia have been created and the red of the British Empire still dominates the globe. There are intriguing details about population density, the distribution of religious beliefs and the production statistics of coal and other minerals, plus much else.

This hard to find gem of an atlas will be of great interest to geographers and historians alike. Despite its worn exterior, this large format book is offered at a very competitive price.

NB additional postage charge.
