G. Bell & Sons, London, First Edition, 1965, 7.5" x 10". This is an excellent resource for the map researcher and collector. We use a copy extensively in our cataloging. It outlines the history of maps and charts, map production and how to date maps and documents using watermarks. Includes a section on globes and armillary spheres, as well as a most useful biographical list of cartographers, engravers, printers and publishers from 1500-1850 that in some cases has better information than Tooley's Dictionary. 256 pp., 59 plates. Hardbound in red cloth and illustrated dust jacket. Revised edition.
