THE

UNIVERSAL ATLAS.

A NEW AND COMPLETE GENERAL ATLAS OF THE WORLD.

With 117 pages of Maps, handsomely produced in Colours, and a Complete Index to about 125,000 Names,

“The best and cheapest atlas ever produced in this country.”—Times.

6. We have at length in England an atlas at once cheap and complete...... As to its accuracy combined with clearness we can bear the highest testimony. We have examined it closely as regards many out-of-the-way places on five continents, and in no case have we found the information wrong or confused...... The index is based upon the usual principle of letters crossing numbers, and we have taken upwards of fifty places, small and large, at random, finding the names in the index and putting the finger without difficulty on the spot on

We have not been able, indeed, to find a single fault with the work, and at every page we have been struck with some admirable feature. Even in the case of recent little wars we have been unable to spot either an error or vagueness in the terrain, and that is more than can be said of any other map within our knowledge...... We do not know its equal either in price or quality." - Daily Chronicle.
