    Tooley’s Dictionary of Mapmakers – the Supplement

    Ronald Vere Tooley the greatest map historian of all time started the “Dictionary of Mapmakers”’ in the 1920’s on slips of paper arranged in alphabetical order. He published this work progressively in Map Collector’s Circle which was discontinued before he could complete the exercise. The principal work was published in 1978 (see our copy listed separately).

    This supplement of 1985 resulted from continued effort and the natural review that arose having published the main body of the work previously.

    A fine hardcover with dust jacket published by Alan Liss, New York, a first printing 1985. Slightly larger again large octavo, 116 pages maybe more impressively illustrated than the main work.
