World Book Day

According to the radio, today is World Book Day, so it seems appropriate for a book of the world . . .
This atlas probably dates from the 1920s, from the names of the countries it appears to be post WW1, and it was probably my grandad's.  I wonder how many Libby's cans they had to consume to get this, or was the atlas a freebie with some other purchase.

  1. I love looking at old atlases and globes. How the world's borders have changed.

  2. I like this! Both the subject matter and the color and design of the atlas. I too like going through old maps of the world and trying to piece the past with the present. Africa always seems to be a continent in flux,
