National Geographic : 1899 Dec
NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE APPLETON'S GEOGRAPHICAL SERIES. Edited by H. J. MACKINDER, M. A., Student of Christ Church, Reader in Geography in the University of Oxford, Principal of Reading College. The series will consist of twelve volumes, each being an essay descriptive of a great natural region, its marked physical features, and the life of its people. Together the volumes will give a complete account of the world, more especially as the field of human activity. The series is intended for reading rather than for reference, and will stand removed on the one hand from the monumental work of Reclus, and on the other from the ordinary text-book, gazetteer, and compendium. Each volume is to be illustrated by many maps printed in colors and by diagrams in the text, and it will be a distinguishing characteristic of the series that both maps and diagrams will be drawn so that each of them shall convey some salient idea, and that together they shall constitute a clear epitome of the writer's argument. With a like object, the pictures also will be chosen so as to illustrate the text and not merely to decorate it. A detailed announcement of this important series will be presented later.
