The Windsor and Eton Atlas includes a substantial introduction to the history of these distinctive towns charting their development over eight centuries. All the buildings, historic sites and streets named on the maps are comprehensively documented in a detailed gazetteer.
The value of the atlas is enhanced by the inclusion of numerous colour illustrations, including early maps and views of the towns, many of them previously unknown.
Presented as a large-format, high-quality A3 folder the atlas includes maps and illustrations printed at A2 allowing clear details to be seen.
There are high-quality and original maps of the two towns at key periods between the twelfth and nineteenth centuries.
