    About Me

    My interest in antique maps was sparked by a map dealer named P. J. Radford who lived in Denmead near Portsmouth. He got me going and by 1961 I had started to buy and sell antique maps and prints. By the late 60's I had opened a shop in Watergate Street Chester. The shop closed in 1998 when the whole business was moved to the internet.

    I am also the webmaster for my village -

    Thank you so much for the two prints of Chester which arrived yesterday.They were beautifully packed, arrived unharmed and are now in new frames. NP
    Many thanks for the Ogilby maps, which I finally collected from the Post Office on Saturday morning. I'm so pleased with them that I'd like to order in addition your 1675 copy of plate 73. LA
    The map has just arrived.  Thank you so much.  It's perfect for my research. LF
