The New World Loose Leaf Atlas - Containing New and Complete Historical, Economic, Political and Physical Maps of the Entire World Including the New States of Europe - with Complete Indexes - Export Edition
C S Hammond & Company, Inc, New York City / Canadian Manufacturers Ltd. Johannesburg. 1920. Hardcover. Complete. A most negligently stored copy of this fascinating atlas. The atlas was published at a particularly tricky time for those wishing to record - with accuracy - the borders of countries, and their allegiance. Most of the post-Versailles plebiscites had still to be held, and other places were still to be, or were in the process of changing (Courland, for example, is shown as a separate entity from Lithuania, and another example is pre-plebiscite Schleswig, with zones marked and with annotations). The early pages proved to be irresistible to insects. They are much eaten! There are also some closed tears. The boards are much worn, stained, marked all about from age, handling and storage. They are sturdy and sound. Despite the wear and injury mentioned above, the contents are pleasing. There are indications of happy use throughout. They have user wear and marks. However, the colours of the maps are fresh and clear. The pages are firm, assured, clean and confident, certain, generous, more than competent. Please note that due to the weight of the book, should the book need be posted to the outside of South Africa, extra postal charges may be required. fk.
