New York. C. S. Hammond and Co., No date. Ca. 1940s.
A tiny world atlas, 4 x 2 1/2 inches; 16 pp including covers (featuring, on front cover, WWII bombers). The maps are printed in full color. The issuer (Big Bend Quarry Co., St. Louis County, MO.) and the title World Atlas are printed on the front cover. Light wear, very good condition. Likely the atlas was printed for civilians wanting to keep abreast of major events associated with WWII. Despite the size, the maps are quite detailed. India remains undivided in this atlas, and Africa is dominated by European colonizers. An uncommon miniature atlas in very good condition. Item #51670
