In this 6th edition of "Lloyd's Maritime Atlas" , many new ports and loading places have been added and political divisions have been brought up to date.
In the compass of a small atlas it is obviosly impossible to include all ports of the world on maps, but the more important are shown, while the positions of those not included on the maps can be ascertained by reference to Section II.
Section II contains a comphehensive list of ports and shipping places arranged geographically, together with their approximate latitude and longitude. The names of the more important ports in each area are printed in heavy type. Some 9000 names are listed.
In many instances names of places have been indented in order to show more clearly their positions on a river, estuary, bay, lake, etc.
The geographical arrangement followed is that which has been in use in Lloed's publications for over 200 years. The coastline is followed round the mainland of the World, continuity being broken at convenient points to include islands, etc.
It is not possible to achieve consistency in the spelling of geographical names, but the spellings adopted are in general use in Lloyd's shipping publications and in many cases alternative names and spellings are included in parentheses.
Owing to various difficulties, mainly printing, accents and diacritical marks have been omitted.
The extensive index in Section III gives the column and section in which ports may be found in the Geographical List of Ports.
All maps are drawn on Mercator's projection with the exception of the Arctic Regions, Map XV.
The information relating to weather conditions shown on the map of the World, Map I, is based mainly on data supplied by the British Meteorological Office and Det Norske Meteorologiske Institutt, of Oslo.
