"This book is written primarily for candidates preparing for the General Certificate of Education.
The main body of the text aims at teaching the pupil to translate the flat contour map into a three-dimensional mental picture, to recognise at a glance the chief topographical features, and to relate these to the human geography of the region.  Brief reference is also made to such principles of physical geography as are necessary fro an understanding of the topography."
