If you are a collector of Welsh antique maps and are looking for a good reference book then I would certainly recommend Antique Maps of Wales by John Booth. Mine is the first edition limited to 1,000 copies published in 1977 but there are later editions you could try and pick up. The main mapmakers are arranged chronologically and there is a good full page illustration to go with each.

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.
