      This book provides a summary and brief analysis of what the Classical Greeks and Romans knew or thought about the world around them in terms of geography and exploratory journeys. The book basically does what it says on the cover, so there isn't much to comment on. This book would make a useful addition for someone researching geography during the Classical Greek & Roman age. For the non-researcher this book may eventually get a bit tedious, even though it is interesting in parts.
