This book was reviewed here in 1985 and has now been republished as part of the Christies Collectors Guides series. There are few changes, although the authors have taken the opportunity to correct a small number of factual and typographical errors. Much to their credit, the new publishers have greatly reduced the price, maintained the printing quality, and have not eliminated any color plates. This is a basic reference book for any collector or dealer. This book and Tooley's Maps and Map-Makers are the first two books anyone contemplating map collecting should buy.
David C. Jolly, 1987
