  1. When I was about 16, I found a couple at world atlases someone had throw out with their trash and liberated them [1967] – one of them included current heads of state: Hitler in Germany. I still have them – never throw away books LOL

  2. Note that’s a common misconception that Africa was ‘carved up’ during the Berlin Conference. The conference merely established diplomatic relations that further down the line lead to treaties between the great powers to carve up pieces of Africa, often just a region per treaty. It’s not like they had a big map of the continent and filled in the territories in one or a few nights, as if slicing a pie, that’s the misrepresentation in political cartoons like featured in the video.

  3. I like these kinds of videos. My stepdad recently found an atlas from the early 1930’s I think. It was made in the city I live in, Chicago, so it’s very U.S centric, but they do have maps for the rest of the world.

  4. How do you find out what to look for? The things you listed are quite specific so I’m wondering, when starting at the map, where do you even start? You could be checking the dates of a thousand cities.

  5. Back in the 90s, I introduced my Thai girlfriend (now wife) to my 100 year old great-aunt. When she told my great-aunt that she was from Thailand, my great-aunt appeared confused. Finally my girlfriend said, "I'm from Siam". My great-aunt smiled. That was a country she knew!

  6. That last Atlas is a treat for all geography enthusiasts! It’s a veritable encyclopedia of the world as seen from the Western perspective at the turn of the last century and was probably quite expensive.
