About This Item

(London: Barrie and Rockliff, The Cresset Press, 1969) 214650669. 4to; original navy boards, lettered in gilt on spine; price-clipped, laminated pictorial dustwrapper, housed in removable protector; pp. 160, incl. index; full-colour plates and numerous other monochrome illustrations of antique maps. Occasional fox spot. Very good condition. "Since 1920, when map collecting began in earnest, there have been many specialised books published on the subject of old maps and atlases. Most of them, written by great authorities in the field, deal either with museum pieces and extreme rarities, or with only one aspect of the subject. This is the first comprehensive guide for beginners and new collectors ... Roger Bayntun-Williams is a partner with his father in the largest business in Britain dealing in old topographical prints. Their gallery is situated in South Kensington and has been established for more than forty years." .
