Hammond Atlas of the WorldBook - 1993
Hammond moves to the head of the (cartography) class with this stunning atlas created entirely from a digital database and featuring a new map projection by the redoubtable mathematical physicist Mitchell J. Feigenbaum. To cut through the techno-chatter, this is probably the clearest, most accurate, and loveliest look at the world available today. It's also an up-to-date geographic reference; the US edition went to press September 19, 1992, timely enough to reflect the breakup of Czechoslovakia and Jugoslavia. Even the 115,000-entry master index is unusually attractive. 11x14.25". Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
