This is John Booth's second book that was published in 1979, two years after his book on Welsh Maps. My copy is the first edition in which is a loose sheet giving a guide to prices. The format is very similar with a write up on a cartographer and a full page example illustration opposite. Lots of useful information and a very good introductory book for the collector of county maps. Recommended. Again click on the Amazon link provided and treat yourself to a copy.
