A Gazetteer of the World (In 7 Volumes)

Ram Singh (Author)
Synopsis This is a fresh edition of the classic The Gazetteer of the World, a unique comprehensive dictionary of geographical knowledge. As a book of reference with the alphabetical quick, easy-to-use system, it surpasses all the existing works of the genre. How many of us know, for instance, the Hissar is district and town in central Asia, hear Bokhara, a fortress in Turkey and of course a well-known district town in Haryana, in India? The Gazetteer records such little facts, with every bit of information on all the three Hissars. The monumental work draws accurate and authentic information from the best authorities of various disciplines, rare maps and charts and published and unpublished accounts of travelers, chroniclers and geographers. All statistical, official documents published throughout the world have been examined and tabulated to prepare the text of each entry. Each entry, of course, records geology, botany, zoology and climate of the country or region. All the same it incorporates history, antiquity, sociology, and political and statistical geography. Such complete information of a place or region, country or continent goes to make this reference book encyclopaedic in coverage and usefulness. The Gazetteer has been properly illustrated by maps, pictures and diagrams to explain and add to the description. While most of the maps have been especially prepared for the Gazetteer, the engravings and drawings are famous work of distinguished artists and cartographers of the past two centuries. The text has been written in a style that is easily read and understood by people at all levels of intellectual development. The typography is clear and easy to the eye, though, a smaller type has been incorporated to provide maximum information within the format of a page. The work has been assessed, reviewed and updated by a distinguished panel of experts from a wide variety of disciplines. They include not only geographers and cartographers but also authors, editors, newspapermen and reference librarians.
