Atlases

By November 23, 2013

Follow me on:

National Geographic World AtlasThe use of maps and cartography to understand the world has a very long history. It is believed that the name "atlas" for a book meaning a collection of maps came from the mythological Greek figure Atlas. Legend says that Atlas was forced to hold the Earth and heavens on his shoulders as a punishment from the gods. His image was often printed on books with names and they eventually became known as atlases.
