There is a full page hand lettered presentation of this atlas as a gift to Dr Drummond Rennie, who in January 29, 1993 gave a presentation to the Explorer's Club of Northern California, and is Signed by Ronald Reuther, club chairman. 

This book is very large and heavy, and extra postage will be requested for Media Mail, Priority Mail or International Mail. 

This atlas has maps of all the continents, oceans, US States, and most of the larger countries of the world. The maps are large and easy to use. There is an emphasis on the original exploration of the world by the European population. 

Drummond Rennie, who is a British/American nephrologist and high altitude physiologist who is a contributing deputy editor of The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) and was a adjunct professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, among many other positions. 

Ronald Reuther (19292007) was a committed naturalist who spent decades managing and improving several major zoos, and was an aviation enthusiast. Armed with a Bachelor of Science in wildlife conservation, Reuther held curator and director positions for the Micke Grove Zoo, the Cleveland Zoo, the Indianapolis Zoo, the San Francisco Zoo, and the Philadelphia Zoo. 

As director of the San Francisco Zoo, Reuther was instrumental in the creation of a project to teach the gorilla Koko sign language. As a member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, Reuther helped to advance the transformation of zoos into research centers, and to promote the conservation and care of wildlife. As an aviation enthusiast, Reuther founded the Western Aerospace Museum and pursued the study of his personal interest in the disappearance of pilot Amelia Earhart.
