    A must read

    for the lover of Maps, Roads and History

    I was 19 when I got hooked on antique maps. There are quite a few of the early cartographers who we know a bit about about and their life stories make interesting reading. There is one English mapmaker who stands out as someone rather special who appears to have had a most interesting life. He is JOHN OGILBY. Yes you know he was the first to map the roads of England and Wales and yes you might have read that he had an interest in dancing. If you want to know more about the man who created that 17th century map hanging on your wall then you must read this book published in 2016 - The Nine Lives of John Ogilby by Alan Ereira. In this book the author brings a fascinating hidden history to light, and reveals that Ogilby's celebrated Britannia is far more than a harmless road atlas: it is, rather, filled with secrets designed to serve Charles II's sinister purpose.

    You can order this book now and get it for less than the cover price of 25 pounds.

    I have been buying and selling antique maps since the early 1960's during which time I had a gallery in Watergate Street, Chester for 30 years. I am now able to offer through my websites a personal service to map and print collectors.

    All the maps are guaranteed to be genuine early specimens

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Are the maps old or are they just copies of old maps?
    The maps are all genuine early specimens published in or around the year stated. A guarantee label is provided with each map.
    How quickly are order sent off?
    Orders are dealt quickly. Orders received in the morning are usually sent off the same day as I receive them. Failing this it is usually the next day.
    Is map number --- available?
    The web site is updated daily and sold items are removed so it is most likely that the map is available. You can always email me to check availability
    What currency are your prices in?
    All the prices on my web sites are in English pounds or pounds sterling.
    What is the best way to pay?
    There is a Shopping Cart for most of the maps to pay by PayPal. The best way is to email me to check a map is available then pay the total amount to my bank account and advise me you have done so. Telephone orders using your Mastercard or Visa Card are also welcome. Overseas customers may find the PayPal Cart the easiest way to by. The reason I prefer the bank payment method is simply because the charges to me are far less than the other methods.
    Can I call and see the maps?
    I am sorry, no. I had a map and print shop in the centre of Chester for 30 years. Since closing the shop the business is postal only except for the few maps that are available only for collection from Christleton.
    How many copies do you have of each map?
    I only have one specimen of each map offered. If I had a second similar specimen it would be offered separately under a different reference number.
