Remaining unsold books from the collection of the late Ian O'Brien.
The Honorary Secretary of The Society had originally intended to have a table at the Lincoln AGM with the Society's remaining unsold books from the collection of the late Ian O'Brien. Because there will be no map market this year and because he understands some Members have been reduced to reading the list of ingredients on their cornflakes packets, he has produced this PDF list listing of cartographic books and atlases.
In the interest of simplicity, prices include UK P&P. Please contact him on honsec@charlesclosesociety.org for bank transfer details if you wish to purchase anything.

From Andrew Turner andrewarliss.turner@gmail.com
I have been given 150 maps to dispose of from the estate of, I believe, a geography lecturer.
Would any Member be interested in anything on the lists below? All are "free to good home" for collection or the cost of postage (while I can post individual maps any bulk dispatch may need to wait until after the "lockdown".) I'm located at Marlbrook, Bromsgrove, Worcs, B60 1DT if you want to collect.
Most of the maps are in well-used but otherwise decent condition (there are variations in both directions from this average). A very few have been wrongly folded in the past; some are annotated very neatly in ball-point; most have a name on the cover.
These lists are very much "Errors & Omissions Excepted" - if details are vital please check with me for particular maps. Printers' (?) letters "A", "B" and so on are only shown for the main 1" list. These maps are being offered to other people, so may not all be available.
