Reprint of the 1914 first edition. Sir George Fordham was born in 1859 and produced many publications describing the maps and road books of the British Isles and France and donated his personal road book collection to the Royal Geographical Society. The Society triennially awards the Sir George Fordham Award for Cartobibliography, a term introduced by him for the cataloguing of maps in a systematic plan. This useful bibliography covers the following: British and Irish Itineraries and Road-Books, Descriptive List of the Maps of the Great Level of the Fens, 1604-1900, John Cary, Engraver, Map-Seller and Globe-maker, An Itinerary of the Sixteenth Century: La Guide des Chemins d'Angleterre, A Bibliography of Works of Reference relating to British and French Topography and Cartography, An Introduction to the Study of the Cartography of the English and Welsh Counties, and Index List of Maps of Hertfordshire, 1579-1900.
