A very thorough, readable and useful book. As the title suggests, it is ideal for local historians, but may also be of value to those using maps as a tool for landscape archaeology or geneaological research.

Although it includes a chapter on OS maps, the book does not provide as thorough an overview as, for example, "Ordnance Survey Maps: a Concise Guide for Historians" by Richard Oliver. However, Paul Hindle's book does cover a diverse range of other maps (County, Enclosure, Tythe, Estate, Canal and Railway maps) and includes useful notes on features, context and interpretation.

I don't know of any other book like it. All in all: a valuable addition to my bookshelf.
