The Imperial Gazetteer of India

Nature volume 81, pages 12 (01 July 1909) | Download Citation



THIS atlas, which forms the twenty-sixth volume of the series, is practically an epitome of all the information contained in the “Gazetteer,” and, as such, it presents to the reader in a concrete form of illustration most of the physiographical conditions of the Indian Empire. The authorities for the information contained in it are of the very highest, and the publisher is Mr. J. G. Bartholomew, which is in itself a guarantee that the maps are of the very best. Geology, meteorology, ethnology, language distribution, and archæology are all included; there are four special maps illustrating the position of the British frontier at different periods, and a series of admirable city maps which might have been extended with advantage.
