Maps For Sale

Disposal of surplus maps from CAHMS' archive.

Local maps for sale

Reorganising our map collection has resulted in a stock of surplus maps which are either duplicates, or from outside our area. We would like the space in our map cabinet, but they're too interesting to send them for recycling. Someone must be able to make use of them.

Many of these maps have led a hard life. They are not being sold as pristine artefacts for display, but as useful local studies research tools. Prices will reflect this.

The 'Condition' column in the list below is my attempt to make a subjective judgement. Broadly speaking, a '1' is whole, in sound condition, relatively tidy and entirely functional, though it may be a little frayed around the edges and have small amounts of annotation. A '2' is worse, possibly with tears and significant annotation, but still basically complete and useable. A '3' is likely to be incomplete, or a low quality copy, but still of use for research (if you don't live in the area which has been torn off!). 

We would prefer purchasers to collect them direct from the museum, though we will post at cost if required. But please don't just turn up at the museum unannounced, because they aren't kept there.

Please email us on info@creditonhistory.org.uk for specific details.  

The following list is of available Ordnance Survey County Series maps, updated 25/11/2016 with a few more we've unearthed. These are 1 in 2500 scale (just over 25 inches to the mile) from the Second Revision dating from about 1905. (See next table for a few more recent maps).
