One box full, perhaps 2 cubic feet or so, of sets of OS 1 inch and 2½ inch map extracts as used in GCE O level and A level geography examinations during the 1950s-1970s. These were rescued from school geography departments many years ago, but a thinning out of possessions means that they need to be disposed of. There are perhaps 100 or more sets, some with only a few maps but others containing up to fifty copies. Their condition is variable, as is to be expected from sheets used by schoolchildren, but generally adequate to good.

I will be holding a stall at the Society’s AGM in Alnwick on May 11th. I have recently sorted my stock of OS military maps, mostly acquired 20-40 years ago and subsequently stored flat in a plan chest. The condition of these maps varies widely from unfolded, pristine to well used. I have too many Popular, War Revision and Second War Revision sheets to take them all to the map market but if you are coming to the AGM and are looking for specific sheets, please let me know and I will reserve them for you without obligation. All will be priced at £1 or £2 each and I can supply map tubes at no extra cost to transport them home.
I also have a stock of final sheets of the 7th Series, most of which are in pristine condition and stored flat, which will be priced at £3 each or less.
Finally I have a large number of spare folded sheets of all states and most ages, mostly from the 3rd edition large sheet series onwards but with a few earlier sheets – too many to bring all to the AGM, so if you are interested in specific sheets or series, please let me know and I can bring them along.
Maps may be posted to members not attending the AGM, subject of course to additional charges for postage at cost.
Please contact me by email at If you provide your phone number I can call you back, given the limited time available before the AGM.

I have a number of old OS Maps surplus to requirements, of various ages (mainly 1" / 1:50,0000). I am very much a map user, rather than collector, so most are well used, or very well used. However, I am reluctant to bin (recycle them) so I was wondering if it is likely whether any fellow members would be interested. Full list is here: William Heaps,

I have a map entitled ‘The Cotswold Hunt’ (62cm x 53cm), it is the 1912 version, printed by the OS but based on the one-inch Third Edition map of England and Wales. The places of meets and the boundaries of the hunt were marked in red. Entitled Cotswold Hunt Map, it also is mounted on thick card & is in pretty good nick. It carries a note ‘Printed Specially for Cotswold Hunt’. This map is mentioned at
Completely surplus to my requirements, came as part of an auction lot, even so I’d prefer it to go to a good home rather than recycling. Might anyone have any interest? Any offer that covers the p&p and something?

The OS's most elusive post-war maps?
As Roger Hellyer observed in the cartobibliography of the 1:25,000 Provisionals, most editions probably exist in Outline form but it has been hard to find examples. The Hon Sec recently had occasion to catalogue a collection of these donated to Society for Lincolnshire History & Archaeology. Out of 86 sheets, no fewer than 33 were of editions not previously recorded in Outline form; 54 were new states (new editions or new price codes). CCS members are offered the rare opportunity to acquire these Outlines at just £1 each (+P&P - or arrange to collect from Lincoln). Maps are on chart paper. Unless noted 'XA', they are annotated with Drainage Board boundaries, SSSIs, and with selected archaeological sites. Editions are given in modern style (eg B1) rather than in the form on the map (B). To place orders, contact . Cheques should be payable to 'Lincolnshire Heritage'. Members wanting information on price codes should contact the Hon Sec.
Also available are numerous sheets in coloured edition at just 50p each (+P&P). All these are flat. Most are late printings having the reverse printed with the basic cover and index map, etc, ready for folding, and are generally in near-pristine condition, albeit some have had hangers attached for vertical storage . Some are early printings, generally in a separate list within each 100km square.
Minimum order value (for Outline and Coloured combined) is £5.

Bids are invited for 3 items from the collection of a member who is now in a care home, to be received by before 8 Oct.
York Town Map, 1920 Paper flat, which has been folded to 5"x10". There are 7 small tears at folds. Only one of these extends within the outer margin of the map; this one continues perhaps 1mm inside the neat line. Small holes have appeared at several intersections of folds within the map. However, the map itself is clean and bright and would justify conservation work.
Killarney District, 1:63,360, revised 1908, published 1913. Buff post-independence cover, with 'SE', shield, title and ?Glendalough view, surrounded by interlace. This is the first of the OS experiments in the use of layers and hillshading, along with hachures, to show relief, It is presumably a post-independence printing, but whereas the state of the plates deteriorated later on, here they still seem to be crisp. (See photo at General condition of map is good.
Six-inch Special Emergency Edition, Northumberland N86SW (Killingworth). Good condition.
Irish quarter-inch sheets Paper, flat, copies are also available of all the Irish quarter-inch sheets in printings ranging from 1905 to 1918, several being in outline form. These all appear to be pre-independence printings, as opposed to later ones. Enquiries invited.

FOR SALE : KILLARNEY 1” map 1913. Rare Experimental map.
Arguably Charles Close’s favourite map. Understood to be the first colour printed map by OS. 11 colours. Arguably the zenith of OS colour printing. Relief shown by black dotted contours, hachures and hill shading.
This is a flat sheet folded, without cover. It is CLOTH. It is 22.5” by 31” portrait. It has wear on some intersects and pin holes top corners only. Must have been somebody’s ‘Pin Up’.
If you would like to see photographs, if you would like to offer what you think it might be worth, or both, or anything else, please be in touch.
