Attend the London Map Fair

Yesterday afternoon, your author made a last minute decision to attend the London Map Fair at the Royal Geographical Society in South Kensington, a collection of 40 of the World's leading  antiquarian map dealers who gather together at the Society's headquarters once a year to offer their wares for sale to other collectors, cash-rich millionaires and ordinary punters.

The fair claims to have a range of maps which extends from the 15th century to the 20th century, and prices from £10 to £100,000, and whilst these are very interesting indeed, the real pleasure was the chance to get inside Lowther Lodge, the grand house in South Kensington which has been the home of the Royal Geographic Society since 1912. The fair continues today until 6pm.
