Instructions & Help

At the top of every page are links to the following:-

The Contents page lists and links to every section in the book.

The List of Plates links to all 160 plates (maps). Click on a plate number or place name to go to that map. Once on a map (or any other page) you can move forwards or backwards in the book by clicking on the right or left hand edge.

The List of Countries is an alphabetical list linked to each map.

The Statistics is a list of links to each page of the Geographical Statistics section.

The Index page links to all 56 pages in the General Index. Use these to find the place you seek, take a note of the square and go to that Plate number via the List of Plates.

The Site Map lists and links to every section, including pages you cannot reach from anywhere else.

Links in pages of the book become highlighted in Yellow, as you hover over them.

Each page opens in the same window, so that you can use your browser's "back" button to retrace your route. The few external links open in a separate tab or window.

Every browser can adjust the size of the text and maps. To see more of a map, use F11 to turn "Full Screen" on/off.


Under the terms of the licence you may print any of the maps or other pages for personal use. Please do not try to print the page you want from your browser whilst viewing it. This works for the text pages, but not the maps or other scanned images.

All of the maps and other page scans are jpeg (.jpg) files, because this is the most common picture format and can be viewed with, and printed from, almost every graphics program.

All the files are named exactly what you would expect them to be called e.g. the map on page 12 (Plate_12.htm) is called Plate_12.jpg and the scan of Index page 22 is called Index_22.jpg etc. The files are stored in three folders (directories) called maps, index and pages, as appropriate.

Find the file you want to print and then open it with your favourite graphics program. All versions of Windows include a program that will re-size a map and print it close to life-size on A4 paper.

The maps and the index pages are mostly printed squarely on the pages of the book. However, this is not the case for many of the Geographical Statistics pages, where the text and the boxes that surround tables etc., are sometimes out of alignment in the original.

Where this occurs I have tried to make the text square to the page and ignored the boxes, because this appears to me to be easier to read on screen.
