As this book is an Atlas , it is full of maps ( they are not that detailed ) So,upon its arrival I looked through the numerous maps... What a dissapointment... Every map I looked at had glaring type set errors.. Miss spacing , letters running into each other , shadows etc.. I was astonished that the Publisher let an Atlas with so many flaws see the light of day and did not consign the flawed run for pulping to preserve its reputation .... ... It speaks volumes of the lack of quality control all along the line from typesetter, to printer to publisher.. A good book spoilt by carelessness ..
The maps are unreadable because they were clearly prepared using fonts and styles not available to the printer, and all names on every map have unreadable spacings. Without those problems, the maps would have serviced a lay public: better than general history atlases, much less detailed than standard more scholarly works. the history of the Ancient Near East through maps was a good idea; but it is now much better done in the incredibly marvelous French Mesopotamie volume in the series Mondes Anciens.
does the job
Checking through the sample of the Kindle ebook, the typesetting seems fine, despite two reviews to the contrary. So, it would appear that these errors have now been corrected.
