Maps and atlases

The Society holds one of the largest private map collections in the world which is continuously increasing.

It includes one million sheets of maps and charts, 3000 atlases, 40 globes (as gores or mounted on stands) and 1000 gazetteers.

The collection has focused on scientifically surveyed maps and charts from official agencies at home and abroad.

Our earliest printed item dates back to 1482.

We hold manuscript materials from the mid sixteenth century onwards, aerial photography from 1919 alongside contemporary satellite images.
