FOR SALE : KILLARNEY 1” map 1913. Rare Experimental map.
Arguably Charles Close’s favourite map. Understood to be the first colour printed map by OS. 11 colours. Arguably the zenith of OS colour printing. Relief shown by black dotted contours, hachures and hill shading.
This is a flat sheet folded, without cover. It is CLOTH. It is 22.5” by 31” portrait. It has wear on some intersects and pin holes top corners only. Must have been somebody’s ‘Pin Up’.
If you would like to see photographs, if you would like to offer what you think it might be worth, or both, or anything else, please be in touch.

SALE: In accordance with the wishes of the late Ian O'Brien, his executors have donated his maps and specialist books to the Society. The collection was truly remarkable for its breadth and - in particular areas - its quality. The material is in the process of being sorted to separate those items that ought to be housed permanently at Cambridge from those that would duplicate material already at Cambridge; this latter category is being sold for the benefit of the Society.
Because of time constraints, the first tranche of material was offered to dealers only. The second tranche has been listed in a more detailed manner and broken into more manageable lots; this is being offered to members as well as to dealers.
The list of lots is at
http://www.charlesclosesociety.org/files/Bids_Invited.pdf
Bids must be received by 12 Dec via honsec@charlesclosesociety.org or on 01522 720692 or by letter.
