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

Reuben Ramble Information

Reuben Ramble

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 added drawings, scribbles and doodles done with pencil and crayons during the time I have been dealing in maps. An interesting and whimsical addition for your map collection.

    Signature

This map comes from an atlas which was once in the library of the renowned carto-bibliographer Sir Herbert George Fordham (1854 - 1929). He was the first to attempt the systematic cataloguing of the maps of an English county. Born on 9th May 1854 at Odsey, a manor on the borders of Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire sold to the Fordham family in 1793 by the 5th Duke of Devonshire. The flyleaf of the atlas was signed H.George Fordham, Odsey, 1925. Further reading: Map Collectors' Circle No. 51: Sir H.George Fordham Carto-bibliographer by J. M. Henshall.

The atlas was later in the library of Professor Eva Germaine Remington Taylor (1879 - 1966) Distinguished geographer. Presented after her death to Birbeck College, University of London. Sold by their order at Sotheby's, London and purchased by Richard Nicholson

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.

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.
