Product Description
The Atlas of Lewis and Clark in Missouri is a splendid re-creation of the natural landscape in the days when a vast western frontier was about to be explored. The Corps of Discovery's expedition began in territorial Missouri, and this book of impecable computer-generated maps opens an extraordinary window onto the rivers, land, and settlement patterns of the period. This book is an intensive examination of the Missouri portion of the expedition through a series of twenty-seven maps developed by combining early-nineteenth-century U.S. General Land Office (GLO) survey documents with narratives of the trip derived from expedition journals.

"For years to come the Atlas of Lewis and Clark in Missouri will serve scholars and Lewis and Clark aficionados alike as the standard geographic reference work on the great expedition's Missouri chapters. The combined maps and text convey a sense of time and place that will enable armchair explorers to experience vicariously the Corps of Discovery's laborious trek across Missouri."-William E. Foley ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Not a "Big Dissapointment" at all!
This book was exactly what it advertised itself as: an ATLAS of Lewis & Clark's journey through what is now the state of Missouri.The authors Harlan and Denny painstakingly researched and reconstructed the channel of the Missouri River and vegetative cover based on expedition field notes and those of the government township survey of 1816. There were no such government surveys of Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, etc. until decades later. By then, the Missouri River had already altered course extensively from what it had been in Lewis and Clark's time.This explains in part, why this edition was concerned only with the state of Missouri.

Without traveling back in time, this book gives you as close a picture of the landscape as is probably possible. As an Atlas, it naturally relies far more on maps than text to show landmarks noted by the expedition, and where they camped. It is actually an excellent companion piece when reading the original journals as transcribed by Moulton or even the Biddle edition of 1814.Ample information is provided to follow the progress of the Corps of Discovery from St. Louis to the Iowa line. Especially if you live near or are familiar with the Missouri valley of today. it is interesting to contrast and compare what you see today to what it was like back then. For aficionados of Lewis & Clark or westward exploration, this is an attractive, very well written, easy to follow Atlas.

5-0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary Atlas of the Lost Missouri of Lewis & Clark
In the spring of 2001, National Geographic Magazine editor Bill Allen was shown a map of the historic Missouri River of Lewis & Clark created by University of Missouri geographer and cartographer James D. Harlan. It was immediately recognized it as a one-of-a-kind historical gem.In the April 2002 issue of National Geographic, the magazine featured Harlan's extraordinary maps recreating the natural landscape along the Missouri River as seen by the Corps of Discovery on their outward and home bound journeys in 1804 and 1806.

It was my priviledge to write the NGM article. I've watched Harlan and historian James Denny at work in the field and cannot underscore enough the enormity and significance of what they have accomplished with their monumental work-- Atlas of Lewis and Clark in Missouri.It includes 27 detailed computer-generated maps developed from early 19th-century survey documents that digitally replace today's Missouri River with the historic river as it was when the explorers passed through territorial Missouri.

The maps depict the course of the Corps of Discovery, precisely locating their campsites and stopping points, as well as landscape features noted by the explorers in their journals.Profound changes in the Missouri River's course over the past 200 years due to flooding, earthquakes,meandering and alterations by the Corps of Engineers to improve navigation have rendered it impossible until now to accurately match the descriptions in the explorers' journals with locations along today's river.

Harlan and Denny's atlas with its richly researched and beautifully written accompanying 70,000 word essay provides readers with an extraordinary window on a landscape thought until now to be lost. Little has been written about the work ofsurveyors who mapped the Missouri between 1815-1819 between St. Louis and Kansas City, a decade after the return of the Corps of Discovery.Using21st century computer technology, Harlan has brought their detailed landscape observations collected in handwritten field notebooks alive again.The result is a collection of beautifully presented and historically accurate maps that match up precisely with Lewis & Clark's journal entries.

Authors Harlan and Denny know the landscapes they present in their atlas firsthand.Lewis and Clark scholars and affectionadosacross the country have sung their praises from the moment the maps and atlas were released.Both are in high demand across the state and beyond its borders.This is an atlas to be read, savored, and revisited by Missourians and anyone else in love with exploration.This labor of love and talent is as close as one could hope to ever get to experiencing the Missouri River as the Corps of Discovery did 200 years ago. Bravo Harlan and Denny for giving us back the lost Missouri River of Lewis and Clark!

5-0 out of 5 stars Destined to be a classic in its field
This monumental book by James D. Harlan and James M. Denny is a remarkable feat of cartographic reproduction of the journey of Lewis and Clark up the Mississippi from the mouth of the Ohio River to the mouth of the Missouri River and then up the Missouri River to the Nebraska/Iowa border in 1803 and 1804, followed by a commentary on the return journey through Missouri in 1806 in addition to four map plates illustrating the historical land cover of the Missouri River valley in what is now the State of Missouri.The creation of these maps by James D. Harlan represents a painstakingly detailed analysis of original survey maps of the river cross referenced to Lewis and Clark journal entries to create as close a representation of the Missouri River as it passes through what is now the State of Missouri in the time of Lewis and Clark as is likely to ever be achieved.The beautifully reproduced map plates are accompanied by a thorougly researched and spledidly written text providing a highly readable, clear and coherent description of the journey through Missouri by James M. Denny.In my estimation this book will be the book all past as well as future attempts to describe and cartographically render any portions of the Lewis and Clark journey will be measured by.The authors, as well as the University of Missouri Press are to be commended for this amazing book.

1-0 out of 5 stars Big Book a Dispointment
This book didn't arrive until December after I ordered it prior to the publisher's announced October release date (no fault of Amazon).This should have been a clue that something was wrong with it. I am sorry to say I'm very disapointed with the "Atlas". I thought it would be a scholarly book with quality maps and images. Instead it is a bloated, oversized coffee table book printed on glossy paper that will probably end up on the remainder table. The plates are decent enough except that they cover only a small part of the huge pages. The maps probably have detail in them somewhere but they too have such small print that one needs a magnifying glass to read them. It gets one star for the map pockets on the inside front and back covers. Too bad they only hold more glossy too large/too small maps. I would advise anyone to forego this book and instead spend the $60 they'll save on one the Moulton U of Nebraska editions. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A Vision of the World by Medieval Europe

''Men in Seville, Amsterdam or London had access to knowledge of Mexico, India, Canada or Brazil, while the native peoples knew only their own immediate environment.''Peter Whitfield

Atlas Visionaries:
If you, like my namesake Cosmas Indicopleustes, who loved to write about his exploration and discoveries, have an interest in cartography, its history or at least, enjoy looking at maps, or review atlases, this is then your book. The Maps and illustrations are stunning, the text is reader friendly and informative. Not a dull moment, that you are to encounter throughout. This Atlas is truly the one atlas, mother of first printed atlases, tracing their history from the Ptolemy's 1482 Cosmographia to the The Times Atlas of 1897.

Brief History of Cartography:
Strabo, writing in Alexandria in 20-10 BC, tells us that the first map of the world was compiled by Anaximander of Miletus in the early part of the sixth century BC, followed soon after by a treatise on geography, including a map showing the earth as a plane or disc by Recataeus. They believed in the Homeric theory of a disc-shaped world surrounded by the great river Okeanus with Delphi and the Aegean at the center of the inhabited world. Others, however, leaned to the Pythagorean theory of a spherical world, a theme taken up by Plato, Herodotus and Aristotle, which gradually came to be accepted throughout the Mediterranean world. Strabo's mis-interpretation of the rival calculations of the circumference of the world made by Eratosthenes and Posidonius was accepted a century later by Claudius Ptolemy who consequently presented a distorted view of the world which dominated geographical thought until the sixteenth century.

Ptolemy's Geographia:
Ptolemy's, a mathematician, astronomer and geographer, living in Alexandria, assembled and systematized his forerunners' cartographic theories especially those of Marinus of Tyre (Ca AD 120) to whom he was indebted. About AD 150 he published his Geographia, a work in 8 volumes, illustrated with a world map, few regional maps and a great deal of smaller maps. Although the text of 'Geographia' survived, no original maps (older than the twelfth century) have come down to us and consequently, we have no means of knowing whether the 'Ptolemy' maps on which we set so much store were, in fact, drawn by him or were the interpretations of later map makers using his textual description. Later, Cosmas Indicopleustus,explorer and cartographer, in his Christian Topography (written 547-549) insisted on verifying, by reference to numerous scriptural passages, the flatness of the earth.

Medieval Cartography in East & West:
Richard Bernstein Declares, in a review, "One of the differences between the West and other parts of the world, and one of the reasons for the global spread of Western power, is that Europeans inscribed their knowledge on maps while others didn't."This was not always the case, earlier, in mediaeval Alexandria, to close with the work of Ptolemy whose map of about A.D. 150 portrayed not only the extent of the explored world but also projected conceptual outlines of parts of the Old World continents not yet explored.
By contrast, despite the subsequent expansion of knowledge of new lands resulting from extensive travel, the Middle Ages witnessed little of record in the progress of regional geography. As a matter of fact, some prominent travelers and writers actually retarded progress by their archaic observations of the earth and its inhabitants. Thus to the Mid-Easterner rather than to the European, belongs the credit of expanding the frontiers of geographic knowledge during this dark period. After numerous trading expeditions to the Orient from about the ninth to the fourteenth century, travelers left detailed descriptive accounts of hitherto unvisited countries.

The mother of All Atlases:
This accessible, clearly written, extensively and handsomely illustrated is also well arranged. After a forward on the atlases collection, mapping during the Medieval Ages makes a good introduction, Era of exploration, Trade simulation of map making, Age of European expansion, and ultimately Growth of knowledge in the nineteenth century. The choice of maps to accompany the text is good, and reflect Allen's wide and well-grounded knowledge of his subject. Mostly all are reproduced in color. Most of the analysis is alternative or apposite.
These include great cartographers started with twelve versions of Ptolomy, Almagest, and Ortelius, Mercator, Speed, De Witt, all the way to Bartholomew. Some of the colors look pale and devoid of life. Though the photographs are grand and beautiful, the text and captions by Phillip Allen are nothing other than classic. Still, the Atlas accomplishes its goal, a pictorial reference to the greatest atlases since the printing press was created; and with a powerful magnifying glass can provide hours of intellectual entertainment.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pleasant 'coffee table book' on cartography
This pleasant casual book on cartography is richly illustrated.Particulary appealing are the reporductions of the atlas maps in situ, with the atlas open to the map and the other pages and edges of the cover visible.Along similar lines, several closed atlases are pictured allowing one to view the cover and clasps.Also interspersed throughout this text are cartouches and title pages.
I would not consider this an authoritative review of cartography.For example the maps illustrated from the monunmental 1513 Waldseemeuller Geography include two maps of Africa, and a map of Crete, hardly considered among the most influential maps from that Atlas.Nonetheless, this is a pleasurable book, richly illustrated, with an emphasis on the visual not written experience.
Note that this book was reprinted in the U.S. in 2000, with the title "Mapmaker's Art", a more appropriate title given the book's emphasis. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Decent First Attempt at Russian History Atlas
There are several atlases on Russian History with a deeply held Anti-Russian Bigotry in their text as well as maps.

Among all the atlases such as those by the malicious Martin Gilbert (court historian of the marxist establishment and a deceitful anti-slav anti-russian bigot) and by Allen Chew's (another virulent anti-Russian tirade), this attempt by Hudson and Channon is somewhat less bigoted and hostile.

The maps are clear and well designed and colors are beautifully used to give clarity.

There are a few shortfalls in this atlas which the authors and publishers might consider for their revised edition:

On page 23 the conversion of Vladimir from paganism to christianity can be depicted at Cherson in Crimea. Baptism of Rus is a very significant moment in Russian History and should be included in any atlas on Russian history

On page 39 the Crimean Khanate is missing and so is the Great Horde which was distinct from other hordes. The Tokhtmysh-Timur war which was fought in part on Russian territory is also missing from the maps.

Similarly, the Cossacks should also be depicted on page 39 as they had arrived on the scene by late 16th century and were raiding the Crimean Marauders and the Ottoman Empire's coastal strongholds.

Eastward expansion on Russia is poorly shown and is missing the great explorers such as Moskvitin and Dezhnev on page 50(small map) and page 55 (big map). For this, the authors and publisher should refer to Colin McEvedy's atlas of the pacific. His map on Russian exploration in Asia is much more lively, detailed and engaging.

Also, a map depicting Russia's interactions with Tokugawa Japan and Joseon Korea since the time of Peter the Great are missing, these could be included on or after page 55 in a separate map. Another fascinating map could show Russian explorers and their travels to middle-east and India from Caspian Sea and astrakhan after Ivan the terrible's victory.

A separate map showing Religious life, saints and Monastaries on the map, and the extent of serfdom in different russian regions from 17th to 19th century can also be shown.

Despite all these shortcomings I would say this is one of the less biased and bigoted atlases available on amazon.

2-0 out of 5 stars I expected better of Penguin
Being interested in the historical expansion of Russia across Asia, I had high hopes for this book, since it was produced by the same publisher that gave us the excellent historical atlases of Europe and North America. However, unlike Colin McEvedy's invaluable works, I think this book was unfocused, convoluted and sloppy.

Where McEvedy's works were the epitome of conciseness, and could cover a half century's worth of continental-wide geopolitical change in a single page, this purported historical_atlas_of Russian history is crammed full of photos, cartoons, paintings and page after page of unnecessary text. Rejecting the brilliant simplicity of McEvedy's books, whose method was to generally show a snapshot of the political map in a single year, with accompanying text explaining the changes since the previous map, this book often shows hundreds of years worth of overlapping border changes on a single map, with different colored arrows- representing military campaigns- snaking their way through the resulting mishmash. The effect is often utter confusion.

Certain important subjects are given short shrift while comparatively insignificant areas receive inordinate attention. Russian expansion into Asia is dealt with by a single very, very bad map, and while the maps dealing with the expansion into the Caucuses and "the Stans" are ok, the explanatory text is unsatisfactorily cursory. Conversely, we are given much information on the location of various factories and industries within Russia, as well as maps of Moscow and the Sevastopol battlefield. The layout of the book is chronologically deranged as well. Can anyone explain to me why you would have a map of 1930s Europe, then have an entire chapter dealing with the history of the 20th century USSR until its dissolution, and_then_throw in a mere 2 maps on WWII? Similarly, why would you have a page with a map on the breakup of the USSR, and_then_finish the book with a chapter on Khrushchev's agricultural policies?? It just doesn't make sense.

You can learn from this book. It has some good maps and some good information. However, "some" is he operative word. Too much dross and too little editing spoiled what could have been a very useful work.

4-0 out of 5 stars Modern Russia - 5, Early Russia - 3
As a long time student of history, I've been delighted by the relatively recent growth in popularity of the Historical Atlas.Studying the cultures of ancient Greece, Rome, Egypt and China or Medieval England, France and Germany and others is much easier for me when I've got plenty of date sensitive maps to refer to, giving geographical context to ebb and flow of events over time.

But I guess I've been spoiled when studying works about these other cultures, where there seems to be plenty of information about what went on in the distant past.It seems we can uncover the nick-name of the king's dentist when we're studying ancient Egypt.But I'm increasingly frustrated when it comes to my efforts to study the more distant portions of Russia's past, and this book, I must admit, was no exception.While providing excellent coverage of the more recent/modern chapters of Russia's past, this book, like every other history of Russia I've been able to find, seems to suggest that we just don't know much about the early stages of Russian history.

I'm glad to have the few maps on Early Russia that this book provides.They do add some helpful map based context to other works I've read, and that's always appreciated.But the more I study Russia, the more I'm convinced that if you're a historian or archaeologist and want to pursue a field where there's still a LOT of history to be uncovered ... try Russia on for size.The challenge will be considerable ... but so's the opportunity.

4-0 out of 5 stars The best available historical atlas of Russia
I have been teaching the history of Russia at Cornel University for many years and have never found a completely satistfactory hisitorical atlas. Channon's work is defintely the best available. The maps are in color and deal with most of the main issues. A notable omission is a map showing the climatic zones which moulded the life of the Russian people.

4-0 out of 5 stars "A USA Today-styled" approach to Russian history
The Penguin Historical Atlases are a great resource for those that are newto countries or perhaps are somewhat younger readers.In John Channon's version of Russian history, you'll find a concise, colorful and informativecollection of articles spanning Russia's origins, the Tatars andestablishment of imperial rule, through the Revolution, reforms andrestructuring of the 20th Century.In a way it resembles something of acompilation of articles from a good illustrated encyclopedia.

The appealof the volume is in it's size, illustrations and charts- I think of it as akind of annotated "table of contents" to Russian history.It's a greatresource to get the basic synopsis of a period, person or event that youcan then take to a larger volume for greater detail. If you are looking fora great coffee table book or in depth Russian history, this isn't it.

Asa neophyte to all things Russian, I found this to be the attractiveappetizer that inspired me to really delve into Russian history andaffairs.

While visiting a friend a few years ago in Siberia, he wasstruck by the readability, illustrations and usefulness of my copy-- yes, Ibrought it with me... He loved it so much, that I just had to leave it withhim when I left.I now have purchased my second copy.

It's a greatlittle introduction to Russia. ... Read more
