5.0 out of 5 stars Atlas of Exploration, January 13, 2009
This review is from: Atlas of Exploration (Hardcover)
Everything that was promoted about this book was true: the excellent maps, photographs, drawings, diagrams, works of art. The text is easy to follow and covers regions, nations, and individuals. We learn what was accomplished and how and why. The book covers material from ancient times to the very modern. The information is well edited and includes a timeline of exploration, biographies, and index. This book is a great addition to any library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oxford Atlas of ExplorationThis hiostorical atlas is superbly done, March 14, 2009

This review is from: Atlas of Exploration (Hardcover)
This historical atlas is superbly executed: typical of Oxford publications. The content is comprehensive and extends from pre-biblical times up to the space age. It's loaded with maps and photos which are beautiful to behold and elucidate the well written text. My only criticism is that the color choices for lines marking the routes of explorers or expeditions need to be reevaluated. On many of the maps showing multiple routes the colored lines are often difcicult to distinguish from one another. For example, in some cases two slightly different shades of red are used that are difficult to differentiate. On some maps the colored line (especially yellows or greens) is too similar to the map background to clearly discern.
