In 1971, OUP Canada asked Quentin H. Stanford to fill the role of Geography consultant on the third edition of the Canadian Oxford School Atlas (COSA). Since then, he has been an invaluable resource in the adaptation process. The ninth edition of COSA is the fifth version for which Stanford has served as General Editor, who previously worked on the fourth, sixth, seventh, and eighth editions.
Stanford also edited The Oxford Regional Economic Atlas of the United States and Canada, 2nd ed. (with J. Chapman and J. Serman, 1975); Canadian Oxford Intermediate Atlas (1993); Canadian Oxford Junior Atlas (1998); and The Canadian Oxford World Atlas, 3rd ed. (1992), 4th ed. (1998), 5th ed. (2003), and 6th ed. (2008).
His non-atlas titles with OUP Canada include Geography: A Study of Its Elements (with W. Moran, 1969); The World’s Population: Problems of Growth (1972); Geography: A Study of Its Physical Elements (with W. Moran, 1978); Geography: A Study of Its Physical Elements New Edition (1988); and The Global Challenge: A Study of World Issues (1990).
