SAINT ASAPH
An engraved plan of the town with strap work title cartouche, coat of arms and scale. 5 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches. Cut out and mounted on a sheet of old paper. Uncoloured. Good condition. In all the years I have been selling maps I cannot remember ever having the opportunity to sell this plan. For it is the plan of St. Asaph that appears on John Speed’s county map of Flintshire. For some unknown reason someone has cut this from the folio map and mounted it on paper. Holding it up to the light you can see the English test that appears on the verso.

This map is only available for collection from Christleton

The label on the back of the frame is of particular interest to me as it is that of Raymond Plant who was a member of the BADA. His address is 25 Watergate Street, Chester. It was Raymond who telephoned me one day back in 1968 and asked if I was interested in buying the remainder of his lease in Watergate Street. I did and was there for there at number 25 for the next 30 years closing the shop in 1998 and moving to the internet in the same year.

Looking at Old Maps by John Booth

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.
