Book Description

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

Praise for Princeton's print edition: "The Barrington Atlas is a major contribution to scholarship, extensive in scale, reliable and up to date, and so laid out as to be really helpful to the user."--Jasper Griffin, New York Review of Books

Praise for Princeton's print edition: "Beautifully produced with an exquisite combination of scholarly precision and the highest level of cartographic art, this atlas is one of the greatest achievements in 20th-century Greek and Roman scholarship--and it probably will never be superseded."--Publishers Weekly

Praise for Princeton's print edition: "This atlas is an indispensable tool for historians concerned with ancient times. But it is also a source of great pleasure for the amateur."--Bernard Knox, Los Angeles Times Book Review

Praise for Princeton's print edition: "I doubt that it will ever be superseded. . . . [T]he clarity and sheer beauty of the maps in the Barrington Atlas, for which Princeton University Press and the printers in Palladio's Vicenza deserve the highest credit and praise, make the main volume a joy to handle. The fold-out of the entire ancient Mediterranean world, Map 1 'Mare Internum,' is to die for. . . . [T]his remarkable atlas . . . Has made a major contribution to re-establishing cartography as one of the basic sub-disciplines within classical studies."--Paul Cartledge, Times Higher Education Supplement

Praise for Princeton's print edition: "[A] wonderful guide to the wordless lessons of antiquity. Everyone who studies Greece and Rome owes [the makers of the Barrington Atlas] a personal debt."--Peter Stothard, editor of the Times Literary Supplement, naming the Barrington Atlas "My Book of the Decade" in the Globe and Mail (2009)

Praise for Princeton's print edition: "[A] vast achievement. . . . . Richard Talbert can be proud of his editorship: the collective effort, academic and technical, that has gone into the realisation of this gigantic project . . . Almost defies the imagination. . . . Their chief goal was to fill a notorious gap, and they have done so with exemplary skill."--Peter Green, London Review of Books
