The first comprehensive world atlas of Spanish origin appeared in the 1950s and was published by Aguilar, S.A. de Ediciones in Madrid: the Atlas Universal Aguilar (1954, with 116 pages of maps preceded by an atlas of Spain; five further editions until 1968), but this notable work was excelled by the three volume, large-sized Gran Atlas Aguilar of the same company (1969/1970, 406 pages of geographic and thematic maps), one of the most elaborate works of its kind published so far after World War II. A concise edition was issued as "Atlas Mundial Gráfico Aguilar" (1976), also published in 1982 by The Kimberley Press, Miami, Florida as Webster's New World Atlas.
