Second and New edition of The Times Atlas published in 1900 (see our 1895 first edition, 1010.000), containing 132 pages of maps and comprising 196 maps and an alphabetical index of 135,000 names. This is the English version of the German Andrees Handatlas, 3rd edition (1893-1897). In this 2nd. Times edition, some maps have been derived from the German Andree 4th edition. The 1900 printing, actually a completely new edition, was issued from 1899 in 24 weekly installments at 1 shilling each. The map size has increased and so has the binding: 30 × 45 cm. The 'luxury' binding has dark brown color, clock and oak leaves with gilt title, "The Times Atlas." It has leather spine and corners, a vertical title on the spine and pages with gilt edges. Most notable extensions in the 1900 edition are the geological maps of the British Isles, the showing of shipping routes, and the regional maps of the United States.
