This volume provides a detailed catalogue of all the maps of Lincolnshire that show the county as a whole, from the first, issued by Christopher Saxton, in 1576, to 1900, by which time the provision of maps of the county was largely in the hands of the Ordnance Survey. A detailed general essay outlines the history of the map-making in Lincolnshire, with reference to geographical changes in the county, such as the drainage of the fens, the building of canals and the coming of the railways. Town plans, geological and other natural history maps are touched on and references are provided to many local surveys and the work of their surveyors. This is followed by a complete record of all the county maps in chronological order, with detailed catalogue entries. Notes on the circumstances of publication contribute information on the ramifications of early publishing and the book and print trade. R.A. CARROLLis a former County Librarian of Lincolnshire, 1980-1984.
