Format: Paperback
If you must own one book on Antique Maps, this is the one. Bannister & Moreland bring an insightful appreciation of the subject; both in general terms and for the specicivity of a collector. Filled with important details of the major cartographers ;it executes this with a brevity other resource authors should emulate. The information is crisp,readable, and informative without weighting down in anecdotal ephemera so common to works of this sort. Other resource and academic authorities should note the format when attempting a guide to their subject[s]. Highly reccomeneded. As an ex-retail map dealer it was my bible in aiding authentification and fair market value. An invaluable tool to the serious collector and professional; and a highly organized book on cartography for the general reading public.

Format: Paperback
This is a first class introduction to the subject of antique maps. I have over 700 books on the topic in my personal library and I often return to this book to brush up on a cartographer, region, or a particular map. Bannister is an internationally respected dealer and expert on the subject. Do not get distracted by cowardly comments and reviews by someone afraid to leave their name. I regularly recommend this book to those who want to read ONE book on antique maps.

Format: Paperback
A nice book! Well-writen and there is a lot of substance here. This is a very useful reference book, and although a bit weak in the maps of the 19th century (especially maps of America interest), it is overall worthwhile and a good source of old map information.

This book may be informative but if you are looking for color antique maps, this book will certainly disappoint you.

Format: Paperback
As a collector of antique maps, I find this book a particularly worthwhile reference guide to old maps. It is of great use in identifying and providing information on historic maps and charts. No serious collector or student of cartography should be without it.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The first disappointment was the size of this book but the cover looked inviting and was excited about it.unfortunately this is a mostly black and white book with about six color maps stuck in the middle which are overcolorized and look cheap. The maps themselves are interesting but not engaging enough for me without the color
and size of images that I enjoy.
