VINTAGE MAPS: ORDNANCE SURVEY, BARTHOLOMEWS, GEOLOGICAL SURVEY MAPS OF ENGLAND, SCOTLAND, WALES AND IRELAND. I try to include the history of the map series as much as known. Particular personal interest in Ancient Sites, Ancient Roads and Trackways, Closed Branch Railways, Canals and Navigations, Airfields of the 2nd World War, River Systems, and history reflected in maps of all periods. Particularly: language of Place Names, and language strata- Brythonic, Anglo Saxon, Welsh, Gaelic, Norse, preserved in place names. I like to give a full description of aspects of each map which particularly interest me, and like to link a map to other branches of study: Elgar and Malvern, Constable and the River Stour, Clyde Shipyards, Civil War, Coal Fields, Trinity House Lighthouses, Ptolemys Map of Britain are some examples. I like annotation which turns a map into a unique diary of some event- a holiday, a mountain climbing expedition, a motor cycle tour in the 1930s.

I AM ON SUMMER BREAK NOW, LOOKING FOR INTERESTING MAPS: THESE LISTED MAPS WILL ALL BE ON SALE ON THE 28TH OF SEPTEMBER. PLEASE NOTE THAT THEY CANNOT BE BOUGHT PRIOR TO THAT DATE.

PLEASE HAVE A GOOD SUMMER - SEE YOU IN THE EARLY AUTUMN, WHEN I WILL BE LISTING THE MAPS THAT I HAVE FOUND BETWEEN NOW AND THEN
