Notes

First edition, first impression, of the English socialist James Francis Horrabin's (1884-1962) sketch of European colonial possessions. "Atlases are usually avowedly instruments of nationalist propaganda... This entails a lack of perspective which only an atlas setting forth impartially the results of all the efforts of all the empire-builders could avoid" (from the jacket flaps). From the publisher's archive, with their stamp to dust jacket front panel, front free endpaper, and title page.
