BARTHOLOMEW'S MAPS are usually regarded as the poor sister of OS , but were always great favourites with Tourists and Cyclists , who preferred the Half inch to the Mile scale. The suggestions for revisions by the Cyclists Touring Club were acknowledged on the maps in the heydays of rambling/cycling.

The Military also preferred the Half inch scale and the OS was only persuaded to take this scale seriously when they were losing sales to Bartholomew.

Dating these maps is notoriously difficult . Where possible I have used a Date Code or Magnetic Variation Date, but otherwise have just noted the full title and date range as best I can.


PRICES RANGE FROM £1.50 TO £4 , depending on age, rarity and condition - please ask for quotes.
