Description:
(Hoo: Grange Books, 2006) 1840139250. 162 x 146 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. 255, incl. index; lavishly illustrated in full colour. Fine condition. "Maps, even those dating from centuries ago, constantly influence our daily lives. They are one of the things which are part of our daily environment. Throughout history, besides having a utilitarian function, every single map symbolizes the period of time in which it was created. ... While the map maker's vision might later prove to be inadequate, or even incorrect, the unique truth is that his map expresses a story that might not be revealed in any other way. It may well be said that each map maker has effectively traveled in his mind vicariously not only to the envisioned places, but also to the future." .

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." .

Description:
(London: Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 2001) 029784234X. Squarish 8vo; original maroon boards, lettered in gilt on spine; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; decorative endpapers; pp. 405, incl. index. Near-fine condition. "In December 1995 Gilbert Bland was chased from the Peabody Library of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, clutching four 232-year-old maps. He turned out to be one of the greatest map thieves in history. Miles Harvey has spent four years tracing Bland's journey from middle-class anomymity to dark criminality, attempting to understand what drove Bland to steal some of the rarest cartographic treasures in the world. ... In The Island of Lost Maps Harvey with great panache and wit conveys an intriguing subculture of map junkies whose cartomania is an obsession both surreal and sublime, who see maps as 'power-imbued fetishes'. It is a sparkling story of artisans, villainy and riveting adventures into the unknown." .

(London: The Batchworth Press, 1953). 4to; original blue cloth, lettered in gilt on spine; no dustwrapper; pp. ix + (iii) + 140, incl. index; reproductions in monochrome of contemporary maps and artwork. Earlier owner's bookplate to front free endpaper; occasional fox spot. Very good condition. "The high repute in which the Map Room [of the British Museum] is at present held is in no small measure due to Dr. Lynam's energy and enthusiasm for maps and the study of maps, for he did much to enrich the collection and to make it better known. The varied essays collected in this book, and the bibliography at its end, will demonstrate the extent of Dr. Lynam's contribution to cartography ... We owe a great deal to Edward Lynam, a fine high-spirited scholar and a man of great personal charm, for he gave the British Museum, and the Map Room in particular, most loyal and devoted service." .
