Beschreibung:

Laminated wrappers, small oblong 4to, 96 pp. "My idea in compiling this atlas has been to show the unfolding of medieval history in Europe and the Near East as a continuous story, an aim in contrast to that of most historical atlases, which illustrate discrete fragments of history and are intended primarily as works of reference. That the nations within this area have much history in common is an obvious fact which the purely national approach often ignores and the modern tendency for microscopic analysis tends to keep permanently out of focus. It is continually emphasized by the method of presentation here adopted and, if the result is at first sight a mere pictorial catalogue, a perspective emerges from the whole which establishes the relative proportions of different historical events. There is no geographical detail on the maps - for example, the only English town shown is London - nor any dissection of political units - the Kingdom of France is simply the Kingdom of France and is never subdivided into Duchies, Counties, and so on. There is, however, much more chronological detail than is usual, each state being shown at many different points in time, and this, together with the constant scale, allows different epochs to be directly compared. The thirty-eight maps that make up the atlas are arranged in five sections. The bulk of each section is made up of five or six maps showing the political state of the area at intervals that average forty years. Two more maps (indicated by the letters R and E after the date at the beginning of the text), corresponding in date to the last political one and showing respectively the extent of Christendom and the development of the economy, complete the section. All the maps cover exactly the same area: Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East." - from the introduction. Name label on front inside wrapper, backstrip needs re-glueing.
