Comments about National Geographic Atlas of the World, 10th Edition - Softcover:
I realized my older copy was from the eighties still showing East Germany so I got new one. As a retired librarian, I am always looking things up and no longer have immediate access to the latest materials. The internet just can't replace an atlas adequately. There is so much information there in a graphic presentation. It needs to be large enough to get perspective.
