This book should have been called "Map of a Nation - Biographies of some of the Key Players in the Early Ordnance Survey"
The writer skips blythely over any technicalities - and the Ordnance Survey is an intensely technical matter. She makes passing references to "zenith sectors", "primary as opposed to secondary triangulation" without offering the slightest explanation as to their purpose.
It is an extremely frustrating account of an extrememly interesting subject.
