This uniqe and very large atlas is the very first national atlas of Czechoslovakia and is also considered as one of the first modern national atlases. It has been published in between the WWI and WW2 - the golden era of Czechoslovakian nation called "The First Republic". After the country gained independence from Austria-Hungarian monarchy it became a nationwide interest to publish great geographic and statistical atlas ojectively and precisely presenting the nation's current state of society and economy. It took more than 5 years to collect all the necessary data before the works on this atlas could have begun and then another 6 years to publish it, also due to fact there hasn't been any similar atlas to be inspired by until it was almost completely prepared.
