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. It also includes original manuscript mapping.
Our earliest printed cartographic item dates back to 1485.
