The Times Comprehensive is one of the two best single-volume world reference atlases available in English. Of the two, the Times holds the lead in depth of cartographic information. The explanatory material is comprehensive, with the section on map projections particularly valuable and detailed. It is written, however, at a senior high school level or higher. Overall organization is clear and logical. The graphical indexes make locating maps easy. That, plus the thoroughly cross-referenced, 200,000-entry index, makes the Times a model of easy access to an unsurpassed volume of information. The maps are very large, printed on heavy stock with a satiny feel. They flow across the two-page spreads in muted shades of blue, pale greens, and cream, breaking out of the borders when necessary. The detail in these 2*211/2* plates is astonishing, drawing the viewer closer and closer to examine yet another peak, village, or headland. The absence of shaded relief contributes to the level of detail, while the hypsometric and bathymetric tints give finer, more comprehensive detail of elevation and depth than any other single-volume world atlas. This work is a model of what a reference atlas should be: a collection of beautiful, detailed maps supported by a superb set of indexes.
