Based on the earlier survey of the roads by John Ogilby each map measures about 10 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches and is made up of usually six panels with a central title panel and unlike other road maps of the period each map bears a dedication to a named person.

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.
