Books about Antique Maps, Charts & Prints curretly in stock

Books about antique maps continue to be published. But do not forget some of the excellent reference books that have been published over the past 40 years and more. These can sometimes be difficult to track down. I can occassionally offer such publications which are listed below

  • Maps and Map-Makers by R. V. Tooley

    Maps and Map-Makers by R. V. Tooley

33271 Maps and Map-makers by R. V. Tooley, 1962. Price: 12.00

MAPS AND MAP-MAKERS BY R. V. TOOLEY

First published in 1949 this is the Fourth Impression published in 1962. 140 pp. Colour aand black & white plates. 10 x 7 1/2 inches. With dustwrapper which has one very short tear. Good condition.

I remember this being one of the first books I bought when I started dealing in maps in the early 1960’s. Then over the years it went in and out of print. I remember the periods when it was out or print and eagerly sought after with inflated prices being paid. It is a very good introduction to this specialised branch of antiques.

    How to Identify Old Maps and Globes by Raymond Lister

33272 How to Identify Old Maps and Globes by Raymond Lister. Price: 12.00

How to Identify Old Maps and Globes by Raymond Lister

This book was another of my early map book purchases back in the 1960’s. It was fist printed in 1965 and this is the Reprint published in the first year. 256 pp. Black and white plates. I remember finding the list of mapmakers useful as these were the days before Tooley’s Dictionay of Mapmakers. Another feature I liked was the chapter on watermarks and the pages of illustrations as I had not come across. this in other volumes.

I have been buying and selling antique maps since the early 1960's during which time I had a gallery in Watergate Street, Chester for 30 years. I am now able to offer through my websites a personal service to map and print collectors.
