381 – Atlas of Athos

Yesterday I found this on the internet: Atlas of Mount Athos / Bildlexikon des Heiligen Berges Athos (2000), written by a historian Paul M. Mylonas, published by Wasmuth.

book Paul Mylonas Lexicon nr 1

It contains 3 books with maps of 30.000:1 (Zwerger = 50.000:1) and plans of monasteries. The prize is € 126,80. More information is difficult to find, but the book was mentioned on this site (in German, but with interesting and recent information!).

New is that the top is NOT 2033, but only 2026 meters high (and according to the map from appr. the year 1900(see nr 379), the top only reached to 1935 meters!!).

    Ik begrijp uit een recensie dat er veel plattegronden van kloosters in staan, architectuur en veel foto’s vanuit een helikopter genomen en dat de juiste hoogte van de berg 2025,54 meter is. Fotootje er bij geplakt, if you don’t mind.
