Textbooks of Yesteryear Need A Good Home
A need to downsize has led to several classic textbooks needing to find a good home rather than end their life in the recycle bin. Can anyone help?

  • Air Photography Applied To Surveying: C A Hart 1943 Edition
  • Maps Topographical and Statistical: T W Birch 1949 Edition
  • Photogrammetry and Surveying: E H Thompson 1977
  • Manual of Photogrammetry Vols 1 and 2: American Society of Photogrammetry 1966 Edition
  • Surveying From Air Photographs: Lt J S A Salt RE 1933
  • Maps For Empire (a pristine copy): A Crispin Jewitt
The Lt Salt book is the Air Survey Committee Professional Paper number 8 and inside the front cover wartime trainee surveyors have very neatly written their names.
If interested please email Alan Gordon

Remaining unsold books from the collection of the late Ian O'Brien.
The Honorary Secretary of The Society had originally intended to have a table at the Lincoln AGM with the Society's remaining unsold books from the collection of the late Ian O'Brien. Because there will be no map market this year and because he understands some Members have been reduced to reading the list of ingredients on their cornflakes packets, he has produced this PDF list listing of cartographic books and atlases.
In the interest of simplicity, prices include UK P&P. Please contact him on honsec@charlesclosesociety.org for bank transfer details if you wish to purchase anything.
