As well as being purchased for reasons of family research, nostalgia and for general use many of our maps are destined for collectors or those with specialist interest, such as local history, genealogy or cartographers. Always in stock at Jeremy’s Books of Southampton, England, are good numbers of maps from The Ordnance Survey, Bartholomew, Johnson and Bacon, Geographia and some interesting and scarce examples from other publishers such as Walker, Philips, and Gall & Inglis.

 Our stocks include some very unusual maps, including early railways maps from Canada, Australia and South Africa and some wonderful examples of folding maps from all over the world, including this fine map of Trinidad (pictured left), published in 1905 by Muir, Marshall & Co.,Port of Spain.
At any one time, we have good stocks of vintage/antique OS (Ordnance Survey) one-inch maps from 1880 to 1930 covering most of England and Wales, mostly in the ‘Popular Edition’ series. We also have a number of earlier maps at various scales as well as good stocks of later ‘Popular Edition’, ‘Seventh Series’ and ‘Landranger’ maps.

Our stocks of 1:25000 maps include a good number of ‘Provisional’, ‘First Series’ and ‘Pathfinder’ and some ‘Outdoor Leisure’. Bartholomew maps, mainly at half-inch scale, are always popular and we usually stock good numbers of these from the 1900’s to the 1960’s. Bartholomew are also known for their early town plans as well as their world-wide series and we usually have a number of interesting examples on sale. 
We understand that for many of our customers, it is not enough simply to know the series, sheet number, name and approximate condition of the map and so our descriptions include, where known, the latest revision date and, where given, the print code as well as a condition report indicating any specific flaws.

Condition:

ebay condition categories (New, Like New, Very Good, Good, Acceptable) are woefully inadequate and so our main means of conveying condition to the buyer is through the ‘Condition’ description, where we do our best to give a good indication of what the buyer can expect. We do our best ot be honest and accurate but when we occasionally get it wrong (after a long day’s listing things start to blur a little sometimes) we will always give a full refund, including return postage where applicable.
