Attend the London Map Fair

As far as your author is concerned, anyone who is unable to find interest in old maps has no soul, and so the London Map Fair, which concludes its annual two day event today, is sure to be an interesting affair.


The largest antique map fair in Europe, the London Map Fair was established in 1980 and, we are told, brings together 40 leading antiquarian map dealers, and hundreds of other dealers, collectors, curators at the Royal Geographical Society, with maps on sale from £10 to £100,000.

  1. I can highly recommend 'The History of London in Maps' by Felix Barker and Peter Jackson.
    Includes an illustration of a prototype of a map printed on a glove for the 1851 Great Exhibition, and other such gems.
