This carto-bibliography of over 1500 Devon manuscript maps contains details not only of the maps themselves, which have been extracted from more than 30 separate repositories in addition to some in private hands, but also biographical information on the surveyors who made them, over a third of whom have not appeared in any national cartographic reference book. There is also an Introduction which explains the significance of these, mostly large-scale Devon maps and how they fit into the national cartographic picture. The detailed list of maps is arranged in alphabetical order of parish for ease of reference, there is a Personal Names Index and coloured illustrations of some of the maps.

The volumes are an indispensable tool for all interested in the social history, landscape and archaeology of Devon as well as the historian of cartography.

Also included is a Supplement containing a carto-biography of 49 Devon manuscript maps which have come to light since the publication of the above Devon Maps and Map-Makers in 2002

Volumes I and II come in a protective hard slipcase.

By Mary R. Ravenhill (Editor) and Mary M. Rowe (Editor)
