Welcome to issue 12 of MapForum.Com. 

It hardly seems possible that the annual round of map- and book-fairs, auctions and symposia associated with London in June are once again upon us.  The last year seems to have flown by. 

Once again, for the next fortnight or so, London becomes the focus of attention as map and book-collectors and dealers congregate to buy and sell, to swop, exchange ideas and opinions.  Having been a participant in the jollities for many years, it still never ceases to amaze me the sheer wealth of material that will be on offer, and will change hands in the next two weeks, both in terms of age and price range, at venues large and small across London. 

I would wish those readers coming to London every luck in the pursuit of that perfect item for their collection, for their wall, or whatever in the coming weeks. 


Help: a few guidelines.
  • This site is best viewed on a PC with a screen resolution of 800 x 600 or more, with Netscape Navigator.
  • All adverts set in the articles are links to a pop-up page dedicated to that advertiser, where their contact details can be found. Watch for the "hand" cursor and link colours.
  • Most small images are links to larger images, which appear in pop-up windows. Again, watch for the "hand" cursor and link colours.
  • It is best to close these pop-up windows after use, as another link might use that window if left open, even if minimised.
  • To print an article open the frame in a new window. In Netscape click the right mouse button on the frame you want and select "open in a new window". Explorer users might try finding the page in their "Temporary Internet Files" directory (sub-directory of Windows)
