This work is the third volume in a series, which together will form a complete catalogue of the Library of the National Maritime Museum at Greenwich. The remarkable collection of Atlases has been catalogued in detail, with each map and chart being listed. Great care has been taken to make the reference index as comprehensive as possible, so that the user may have no difficulty in locating the place or area he seeks. The catalogue volumes on Voyages and Travel, and Biography (which is in two parts) have already been published. Forthcoming volumes in the series will include Piracy, Shipping Companies, Naval history, Navigation, Maritime Trade, Fishing, Maritime Law, Yachting and Cruising and Naval Architecture.
