Maybe lots of folks think it's not as accurate as it should be [In reply to] Can't Post

but I think it's a matter of opinion. I think the Atlas is great and have used it a lot; read LotR through with the Atlas at hand, it was a whole new experience. It clearifyed much about the Sil, and its Ambarcanta-intro thrilled me so much.
One thing I didn't agree with was her north/south-alignment of the Blue Mountains, I always felt, that Mount Rerir was located at the northern outcropping of the BM on the professor's maps in LotR, but then I just made my own map for use in my fanfics.
BTW my copy of the Atlas from 1992 is read to shreds, I'm going to find a hardbound edition for the future.
