Succeeding the 1990 edition, the ninth Times Atlas continues its domination among the world atlases. Of the sixth edition, Sheehy (usually neutral) writes "extremely fine," Kister declares "best in the land," and Sader in General Reference Books for Adults "... atlas of first resort...." BCL3 puts it in the core of college libraries. (Strangely ARBA has not reviewed an edition between 1985 and 1992.) While usually published at five-year intervals, the turbulent world justifies this edition only two years after the eighth. On a two or five year revision schedule the Times must be the first choice for all collections. The seven physical maps of the land and oceans are the most exquisitely lovely plates to be found in any atlas; Bartholomew remains the premier cartographic house. 12x18".
