The OS seemed to struggle in early days to find suitable sheet areas to cover E&W satisfactorly.

Even the Third Edition was originally issues in 12 Sheets, then three Special Sheets were added in Brown CoversFinally an "A" edition of 11 sheets was settled on( don't look for sheet 5A -there isn't one)These stages can be distinguished by reference to the key on the back cover.



As with most OS maps, there are numerous revisions and reprints - please contact if you are looking for a particular "state" of any map.
