Dictionary of Dutchness


The ubiquitous Bosatlas takes its name from Groningen school teacher Pieter Roelf Bos who produced the first school atlas back in 1877, coinciding with the introduction of geography as a school subject. Still an essential textbook for all pupils, the traditional Bos atlas is now in its 53rd edition. You can also buy ‘my first Bos atlas’, junior editions, world editions, history editions or check it out online.
