Format: Paperback
This is a very useful guide for family historians.

It covers the use of maps and map-related surveys from Elizabethan times to more recent ones, with case studies. The maps and photographs are all very nicely reproduced and the text is clear and well-written.

This is NOT just a collection of maps to be used for research, as a previous commenter seemed to infer from the description. It is a guide to using maps in your research and I found it very useful in my own projects.

Maps are fascinating in so many more ways than just showing how to get from A to B! Old maps also tell the reader about Parish boundaries, tithes, Homesteads and how towns and villages grew! We must not let maps, or the skills to read them disappear! Satnav can never replace the beauty of a real map! Also a really useful tool in genealogy terms, and really old hand drawn maps are works of art in their own right!

I returned to book as I was so disappointed, it didn't cover the area I required and the write up was very misleading.
