1920

This three-language atlas published between 1919 and December 1920 as background material for the peace talks in Trianon in 1920 did not meet all the criteria for a national atlas, because it mainly showed the economy of Hungary only on the basis of data from the last year of peace (1913). The 4th edition (29 x 20.3 cm) already contained 68 colour maps (at about 1:4.2 million scale) and 6 graphs.
