I’ve bought this geographical atlas of the world at the antiquarian bookstore in Kyiv, Ukraine. It was printed in the German Democratic Republic in the year 1979, that’s why I think it was brought to Kyiv before the year 1991, in the time of the USSR. The cover is not in perfect condition but the atlas itself is a great example of German Democratic Republic cartography.

The whole atlas is of great quality — good print, nice (standard) colors, thick paper. I think that this edition had many copies because the price for the atlas in book stores (both online and offline) is quite low.
