Hammond's Complete World Atlas from 1950 in a blue hardcover. Beautiful book of maps, solar system tables, gazetteer of the world and America with politics, facts, culture.

Over 200 full color pages of maps, plus 170 more of diagrams, solar system illustrations, maps of political associations and natural resources, tables of towns, cities, distances, statistics, and geographical terms. It's a wonderful book, perfect mid century colors (that blue, you know that blue, with subdued moss green, vibrant yellow and orangey red).

The book measures 9 3/4" by 6 3/4" and well over an inch thick. The paper is smooth matte, and smelling of paper (not musty damp). There is some foxing at the edges, perhaps a page or two with a minor crease but overall the pages are in very good shape. The hardcover has some wear and knocks, and no dust jacket.

To have on a shelf for reference and enjoyment, or to gently unbind to frame and display the maps, this is a very nice old find.
