5. The five third edition maps (nos. 1,4,5,6,7) were all probable casualties of the abandoning in 1911-12 of the publication of hachured versions of the one-inch engraved map. They were probably sheets almost ready for publication at the time, and while given a limited circulation to some university libraries, were never sent to the legal deposit collections, and probably were not sold to the public. The second edition sheets (nos 2,3) were probably similarly cancelled with publication imminent in third edition. The hills edition of sheet 83 (no 2) progressed no further; in the event sheet 84 (no 3) would suffer the same fate of cancellation a second time as a third edition sheet.
