Prachtige atlas. Groot en zwaar (7kg.) en vol met oude kaarten. Vol met figuratieve platen waarvan enkele uitvouwbaar. Elke bladzijde is van stevig papier. Het is leuk om te zoeken naar plaatsen die je kent (en niet kent) en te vergelijken met hoe het nu is. Goede introductie van de atlas en ook per kaart een korte toelichting. Bijna heel de wereld komt voorbij, maar het zwaartepunt wordt gevormd door Europa. Daardoor zijn niet alle kaarten even interessant voor mij. Al met al waardevol bezit!
