[A revised version of the list published as CBRS 38 (April 2000)]

The Society's atlas was issued in four instalments in 1936, 1938, 1942, and 1952, with one final sheet (51 Orthoptera) ten years later (1962). The first issue, dated 1936, included the hardback loose-leaf binder with gold titling and 20 other items, as listed in the Introduction to the first issue of sheets. The undated Introduction to the second issue of maps lists items in both issues including nine new sheets which were published in 1938, and a similarly undated Contents of the Atlas of Croydon, including the third issue of maps, etc. lists 33 items, including an additional eight items published in 1942. An additional seven sheets were issued in 1952, but without an accompanying complete list. A final item (51 Orthoptera) was published in 1962. Apart from the first issue of 1936, the Atlas sheets are undated. Dates of publication have been ascertained from the Society’s records.

At least one sheet (Harding’s 81 Growth of population map) is reproduced in L.B. Escritt’s Regional planning. An outline of the scientific data relating to planning in Great Britain (George Allen & Unwin Ltd., 1943.)
