National Geographic : 1918 Jan
Free! Doubleday, Page & Co.'s Geographical Manual and New Atlas In order to follow the battle lines intelligently it is necessary to have a complete set of world maps. Nothing is so discouraging as to read of towns we know nothing about-whose position in relation to other towns or the battles being fought we have no idea of. In every home there should be a map of every nation at war if we are to understand exactly what our gains mean and when peace may reasonably be expected. The world's history is told by maps. The world's progress is told by maps. You must have maps to visualize the dream of the Kaiser, the object of the Allies, the progress of the Great War. To meet the present demand for a complete set of world maps, Doubleday, Page & Co. are now offering a new War Atlas containing 240 pages of maps-political, economic, geographic, racial,phys ical, historical,and showing the vegetation, popu lation, and language. This remarkable Atlas measures Io x 13/~ inches. To those who purchase the Atlas now a complete set of After-the-War Maps will also be sent without charge. As an inducement for prompt action, we will send free the new map of the Western Front pictured above. In addition to 7,000 towns, cities, and hamlets, this map gives all woods, fortresses, forti fied towns, naval arsenals, forts, redoubts, batteries, air-craft depots, wireless stations, and railways.
