Maps In The Atlases Of The British Library

RRP $1.00

Click on the Google Preview image above to read some pages of this book!

Although there are catalogues of individual maps in The British Library, up to now there has been no thorough listing of the maps in the Library's large collection of atlases. This considerable study describes the map contents of over 3300 pre-1800 atlases, including general works of geography, history, and travel which contain nine or more maps. English material predominates, but the Library's holdings of Dutch, French and German atlases are substantial; there are also many atlases from other European countries, as well as those of Arabic, Persian and Oriental origin. Over 100 atlases are composite in nature, often preserving rare material not found elsewhere. Details of atlas publication, provenance, colour and binding are provided, together with itemization of each map, cross references and scholarly source material.

Intelligence handbooks were compiled for the use of British officers for military purposes. The handbooks were compiled partly on the basis of existing authorities such as Lorimer®s Gazetteer, earlier travel records and recent military intelligence, and partly from what was called "native information". They provide detailed descriptions of the regions, settlements, routes and inhabitants of the Arabian Peninsula and Gulf. Originally all these documents were classified secret. They are now made available to historians and researchers as richly detailed surveys of a land and a culture.
