Produced to the highest standard by the leading mapmaker of the day, the maps – large-scale, small-scale, historical, topographical, multiple city plans and other insets – are clear, detailed, intricately colored works of art. “The Atlas” provides the first complete set of maps of the ancient world, both classical and biblical. A full index of names and places, both ancient and modern, accompanies each of the larger maps. For each map there is also an accompanying text, giving sources and authorities for them.”
