Full title

Stielers Hand-Atlas 254 Haupt- und Nebenkarten in Kupferstich. Zehnte Auflage. Hundertjahr-Ausgabe Von Grund aus neubearbeitet unter Leitung von Prof. Dr. H. Haack in Justus Perthes' Geogr. Anstalt

10th and last edition of probably the most popular large german "Hand-Atlas". It is unsurprisingly also the largest edition ever made with exactly 108 douple page maps of the whole world. As usual, Stielers presents the whole world rather evenly with obvious exception of Germany and middle Europe (which is newly presnted at a smaller scale of 1:925 000). The 10th edition comes with sveral completely new maps from developing regions (2 from eastern Europe , 6 from Middle- and East- Asia, 2 from Africa and 2 from Australia and New Zealand). My absolute favourite maps are still maps #3 and #4 - North and South Pole - both showing dated journeys of polar explorers and expeditions.

Condition

The book cover is showing some wear on edges and also has some spots. The spine cover is torn about 5 cm from the bottom on front edge. Several of the first pages including the title page were damaged on the corners and are repaired now (the extent can be seen in photos #2-3). The binding is solid and no pages are loose. The pages show some yellowing on sides but otherwise are clean and generaly with no marks. Overall good condition for its age.
