We reprinted this volume as we found it essential when using large scale maps, and it was long out of print. With this book, one can identify which six-inch or twenty-five inch map shows an area of interest. Thus armed with sheet numbers, one can begin to track down copies, and if visiting an archive office, one can ask for maps to be taken out ready for your arrival. The Scottish large scale maps are trickier than those south of the border, and had changes to county origins between some editions, and changed sheet lines elsewhere. All such changes are clearly noted on the relevant pages. This new edition includes extra material, including new indexes drawn specially for this work.

Survey and revision dates for all counties are given, together with several pages explaining the conventional signs and abbreviations used on maps.
