Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. From the cover: “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 the 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, for it not only discusses the range of maps which can be found on the market today, and gives, as far as possible, approximate indications of their value, but also describes the methods by which the maps were made, and the men who made them. Equally, the wide range of material covered contains much that will be of interest to the experienced collector and the dealer.
