I've been trying to find the best price I can for this as it appears to be the ULTIMATE atlas (544 pages)....so far this is as cheap as I can find. If you find it cheaper PLEASE let me know!!

Uses ML3610 for 10% off and qualifies for free delivery.

A new edition of the world's most prestigious and authoritative reference atlas. Since its first edition in 1967 it has sold well over 1 million copies and its detailed and beautifully created mapping represents the perfect blend of tradition, authority and style which set it apart. Presented in an elegant, gold cover and slipcase and printed for the first time on FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) paper. For this new edition, all the maps and detailed thematic information are completely updated with the latest geographical and geo-political changes - these include an estimated 20,000 updates with 3,500 changes to place names alone. There are full updates to the world's states and territories as well as to the geographical information on the world's physical features - now illustrated with the latest satellite imagery.The Atlas also begins with contributions from experts in many geographical fields, providing detailed information on the key issues facing the world today - climate change, environmental threats, global communications, biodiversity and energy resources - with supporting maps, images, photographs and graphics to illustrate the physical world today and man's interaction with it. Finally, the unique scope and breadth of the index - containing entries to over 200,000 places and geographical features - also includes a comprehensive set of alternative spellings for place names and former names, allowing users to easily find what they are looking for. Four years in the making, The Times Comprehensive Atlas of the World is painstakingly researched by a dedicated team of over 50 cartographers from Collins Bartholomew - with changes to the database made every 3 and a half minutes using a 24-hour-a-day news feed. The Atlas is relied on and trusted by governments around the world, international organizations including the UN and European Commission and media companies and both the Collins and The Times atlas ranges have won 10 major cartographic awards over the last 5 years.

Why cold? I bought this for my wife for Christmas a few years back; it's brilliant for looking up where Michael Palin has got to, for example. There's no village in Africa so small that we can't find it!

Mine was about £80, from Play, so I suspect that it's fairly standard to find it for that price; but a storming atlas; and well worth the dosh.

Very nice, will look wonderful on a coffee table, and be obsolete as quick as the foam on a cappuccino on the same table
I was looking at an old atlas of mine just the other day, I hadn't seen it for a while, and as static as you think the world is, I had a laugh at some of the content! A sad fact about "reference" books.

I can't imagine many people will have a need for this level of coverage, and if they do, they might want it on an easily updatable basis, and they can get it for free on Google earth or Live Maps topped up with masses of other info and references online. that isn't so good to leave out on a coffee table perhaps, but that's how things have changed!

I LOVE factual books of all sorts, and can read this sort of thing like others can read novels, that's a quirk of mine, but unfortunately it isn't going to be for the average bloke in the street! For one thing at 544 pages, reading it in bed will cause rib fractures! ;-)

For reasons such as this, voted neutral!

If you love these kind of books and are likely to buy more it might be worth taking a look at joining the Folio Society. They specialise in this kind of think and at the moment have the Times Atlas at £9.95 as a joining incentive. This will commit you to buying more books[B].

Hope this helps,

As atlases go this one is brilliant, and is also probably the largest you will see.

I have one my uncle left me in his will when I was a kid, and the quality is excellent.

However, the maps available on the internet can really do anything you would manage with this - although obviously with the Times one, the borders round South Ossetia wont disappear when America takes the huff at Russia tying up a conflict in a week.

They are amazing books, I have an older copy and the Complete Atlas History of the World.
I bought them both from TheBookPeople at a massively discounted rate (I think it was £20 each). Wasn't recently but do keep your eyes open and you never know it might come back again.

[url]www.thebookpeople.co.uk[/url] here it is only £15.00 plus P&P try it for yourself

happy reading
