    Abstract

    THIS atlas consists of a series of maps chiefly representing the British Empire. They are very clearly printed, and some of them are decidedly good specimens of cartography. The bathyorographical map of the British Isles is particularly worthy of notice. It is beautifully clear, and in every way an excellent piece of work. The special feature of this map is the orographical colouring, the effect of vertical relief being obtained by means of a system of colour-tinting in shades of brown, the shades increasing in density with the elevation. The bathymetrical colouring is in shades of blue. As this is such an effective map, it is a pity the same scheme of colouring was not adopted for the other physical maps, as in comparison they, and particularly that of lndia, are much inferior productions.
