Cloth, 8vo, 22 cm, 72 pp, plates, 31 ills. From the blurb: "This is a concise and fully illustrated introduction by a well-known dealer and collector to a hobby that is rapidly growing in popularity; it admirably answers the need for an inexpensive guide to cartography, which can hold pitfalls for the unwary purchaser. Collecting old maps can be very exciting for those who travel, who are interested in landscape, environment, old churches and settlements, or who simply wish to invest in them. Mr Radford tells his readers "what they need to know" about antique maps of every continent, including how to distinguish an old map from a modern reproduction how to decide what to collect and how maps were coloured. Over a hundred cartographers are described, being the important names to look out for and they range from the famous John Speed (who produced the first English general atlas in 1627) and Gerard Mercator who gave the term 'atlas' to a systematic collection of maps, to Thomas Jefferys the 18th century geographer who made many important maps of America, and his successor, William Faden."
