Book cover

The Atlas of Ancient and Classical Geography by Samuel Butler is an exceptional resource for anyone with an interest in exploring the ancient world. Butler's meticulous research and detailed maps provide an excellent tool for studying and visualizing the landscapes, cities, and borders of bygone civilizations.

One of the highlights of this atlas is the wealth of information it offers. Butler's comprehensive approach ensures that nothing essential is left out - readers can delve into the maps and discover ancient regions and cities that are often overlooked in other references. The detailed descriptions accompanying each map are a great asset, providing historical context and fascinating anecdotes that greatly enrich the reading experience.

Moreover, the quality of the maps in The Atlas of Ancient and Classical Geography is truly outstanding.

The color palette used is tasteful and adds vibrancy to the maps, while not overwhelming their clarity and legibility. The overall layout is well-organized and makes it easy to navigate between different regions and time periods.

While The Atlas of Ancient and Classical Geography is undoubtedly a fantastic resource, it is important to note that it might not be suitable for casual readers seeking a light introduction to ancient history. This book requires some prior knowledge of the ancient world to fully appreciate the level of detail and depth provided. However, for those willing to invest time and effort into understanding the intricacies of ancient geography, this atlas is an indispensable companion.

In conclusion, The Atlas of Ancient and Classical Geography by Samuel Butler is an exceptional work that successfully combines meticulous research, stunning visuals, and comprehensive information about the ancient world.

The maps of the Classical Atlas have been scanned at a sufficient resolution to enable easy reading, but they may not display at an appropriate scale, depending on screen size, resolution, and window size; we recommend you use software that allows zooming to view them.

The numbers of the maps given in the Index pages are the same as those in the list in the main body of the Atlas, allowing cross reference.
