A to Z
The series of five A to Z editions for London and the edition for Georgian Dublin provide the collector the ability to own facsimiles of the rare and less rare maps of great importance in the history of both cities, in a format that is easily storable. Not all of us have plan chests in our houses! The maps concerned have been faithfully reproduced in the original scale (with the exception of one large scale map that has been slightly reduced) on high quality paper and case bound in A4 format together with a dust jacket.
The series of nine sets of playing cards provide the collector with the ability to own facsimiles of some of the most important playing cards published in the 17th and 18th centuries. Each pack has been faithfully reproduced on thick card and contains an introduction; both are contained in a card packet similar to those found in modern playing cards.
In the 18th Century, with the improvement of the roads, travelling became easier and people began to be interested in the country around them. This led to a demand for large scale maps which was met by a sequence of beautiful County Maps, mostly at a scale of 2 inches to a mile; a scale that permitted the recording of almost every building then existing. These maps were presented as sets of sections that could be assembled. Reproduction of maps of the counties have been published as part of an expanding series. The reproductions are presented as sets of loose sheets, bound flat between thin card covers or case bound and printed on high quality paper.
Note that there are some single sheets available from these maps at £7.95 each, thus please advise if these are of interest.
The range of fine facsimiles of the London maps provide the collector the ability to own facsimiles of the rare and less rare maps of great importance in the history of this great city. The detail displayed will be of great interest to historians, genealogists as well as those interested in cartography. The facsimiles themselves also make exceptional wall displays.
North America at the time of the Revolution
The mapping of North America was developing at the same time as the mapping of the English Counties. By 1776, a comprehensive series of maps had been published which covered both the continent as a whole and individual states or groups of states. The most important of these maps have been reproduced and are presented in a three part series.
These reproductions are printed on paper of size 30 inches by 22.5 inches and are presented as looses sheets and bound flat between thin card covers.
Old Series Ordnance Survey of England and Wales
The one hundred and ten sheets of the Old Series Ordnance Survey, together, represent the first overall large scale map of England and Wales. The map sheets, engraved to a scale of 1 inch to one mile are very detailed and, inasmuch as they were based on a rigorous trigonometrical survey, were of unprecedented accuracy. They were also among the most beautiful examples of the contemporary map engraver's art.
Because of the military significance of the "invasion coast" facing France, the Southern counties were covered first, being fully mapped by 1819. By 1840, the mapped area had reached the Hull - Preston line and by 1873, national coverage was complete.
Each volume in the series of eight contains an illustrated introduction and carto-bibliography. These introductions have been designed so that they build into a coherent narrative relating to the early years of the Ordnance Survey. As a special feature, the first five volumes contain a full colour plate reproducing part of an original Surveyor's drawing relating to a sheet within that particular volume.
The eight volumes have been faithfully reproduced in the original scale on high quality paper and case bound in a format slightly larger that A4 together with a dust jacket.
A collection of fine prints and other publications which, apart from two volumes, are ideally suited to framing.
