The significance of some towns being underlined in red is given by the previous owner of the atlas John Hobson Matthews by means of a manuscript note in red ink he has added at the start of the atlas. He says
The places underlined in red ink are those in which a Catholic mission has been established between the era of the Reformation and the year 1840
John Hobson Matthews
John Hobson Matthews (1858 - 1914) Born in Croydon in 1858. Educated at schools at Blackheath and Cambridge. Worked for a shipping firm in Malta.

FOR THE MAP COLLECTOR

31359 Cumberland, Reuben Ramble, c1845. Price: 76.00

CUMBERLAND. An uncommon lithograph miniature map of the county surrounded by a wide border of vignette views of local scenes including Carlisle Cathedral, Lead Mine, Lowdore Watderfall, Keswick Lake and Skiddaw Mountain. The maps first appeared in Miller’s New Miniature Atlas published in 1810. The decorative views were added and the maps republished by Darton & Clark in “Reuben Ramble’s Travels Through the Counties of England” in 1844. 5 3/4 x 7 1/4 inches. This is the size of overall area and not the contained map. Original hand colouring. With this map is the original double sided page of text describing the county.

Reuben Ramble was a pseudonym of the Reverend Samuel Clark (1810 - 1875). The Rector of Eaton-Bishop in Herefordshire and later a curate in Northamptonshire. He wrote geography books for children being in partnership with the publisher William Darton from c.1836 to 1843. Many copies of Reuben Ramble's Travels will no doubt have been lost over the years through mistreatment by children. I have seen specimens with drawings, scribbles and doodles during the time I have been dealing in maps. A whimsical addition for your map collection.

Excellent Book for the County Map Collector

If you can find a copy

When I started collecting and selling maps back in the 1960's there were very few reference books on antique maps. The first book I remember buying was Maps and Mapmakers by R. V. Tooley. Full of wonderful information but over the years there were periods when it was out of print. The Antique Collectors Club used to produce a large range of books on all kinds of antiques and in 1983 BRITISH COUNTY MAPS by YASHA BERISINER was published. To the best of my knowledge there has not been another book like it published. A most useful and informative work and essential for the avid county map collector. I think there was just the one edition. If you can get hold of a copy at a reasonable price my advice would be - Buy it. There is a link below that will search Amazon for copies on sale.

My well used copy pictured on the right still has its distinctive red cover illustrating Cambridgeshire by John Speed. The county I was born in.

WF15 Liverpool Picking up a Pilot, Edward G. Walker. Price: 30.00



Limited edition of 500 numbered prints signed by the artist

Image size: 29 1/2 x 19 3/4 inches

Here is the giant jute clipper Liverpool, the largest sailing ship under the red ensign at the beginning of the 1890's and specially built for the Calcutta jute trade, picking up a pilot off the mouth of the Mersey. This four masted iron ship built by Russel & Company of Glasgow in 1889 was owned by R. W. Leyland & Company of Liverpool. Her gross tonnage was 3396. Her length 333.2 feet, In breadth she measured 47.9 feet and in depth 26.5 feet. She could stow 26,000 bales of jute, a dead weight of nearly 6,000 tons. Her first master was Thomas Calder. When outward bound from Antwerp to San Francisco in 1902 under Captain Lewis, the Liverpoool went ashore in fog on the rocky coast of Aldnerey on the 25th February. She was under all plain sail at the time and the crash on the rocks broke her back. Her crew of 35 were saved.

The pilot schooner in the paining is the number 7 boat Lancashire Witch built by Michael Ratsey of West Cowes in 1863. Withdrawn from service in 1896. Sold in 1897 to Leith owners. Gross tonnage 56. 80.7 feet length, 18 feet breadth, 19.6 feet depth.

All the maps are guaranteed to be genuine early specimens

Frequently Asked Questions

Are the maps old or are they just copies of old maps?
The maps are all genuine early specimens published in or around the year stated. A guarantee label is provided with each map.
How quickly are order sent off?
Orders are dealt quickly. Orders received in the morning are usually sent off the same day as I receive them. Failing this it is usually the next day.
Is map number --- available?
The web site is updated daily and sold items are removed so it is most likely that the map is available. You can always email me to check availability
What currency are your prices in?
All the prices on my web sites are in English pounds or pounds sterling.
What is the best way to pay?
There is a Shopping Cart for most of the maps to pay by PayPal. The best way is to email me to check a map is available then pay the total amount to my bank account and advise me you have done so. Telephone orders using your Mastercard or Visa Card are also welcome. Overseas customers may find the PayPal Cart the easiest way to by. The reason I prefer the bank payment method is simply because the charges to me are far less than the other methods.
Can I call and see the maps?
I am sorry, no. I had a map and print shop in the centre of Chester for 30 years. Since closing the shop the business is postal only except for the few maps that are available only for collection from Christleton.
How many copies do you have of each map?
I only have one specimen of each map offered. If I had a second similar specimen it would be offered separately under a different reference number.
