Terrific run of the first 79 volumes of this important reference work. The Map Collectors' Circle contains what is still the broadest reaching series of articles on old maps. This series was initiated, edited and published by the most highly regarded map expert of the 20th Century, Mr. Ronald V. Tooley. Contributors include scholars, dealers and collectors with articles on a wide range of topics that are readable and practical. Collectively, they cover probably the finest compendium of maps and their makers. Indispensable reference work for collectors, libraries, schools and dealers. Original cream paper wrappers.
