Welcome to "Maps for Sale" a personal selection of interesting maps by Kit Batten
Maps for Sale is a site which I have set up in order to dispose of my rather large collection of maps built up over more than 25 years.
The main core of my collection is made up of maps of Devon (i.e. both county and town maps). This comprises both early maps printed before 1837 and most of which can be found catalogued and described on my web site Printed Maps of Devon; and also maps printed during Victoria's reign which, appropriately, are described on my website Victorian Maps of Devon . Both of these web sites are based on the work carried out with the collaboration of Francis Bennett to whom I am eternally grateful.
Other maps of Devon are maps which are also pre-1901 but were not included in these two works. Most of these were outside of the scope of these two books (e.g. not county maps). A number of maps are those of the city of Exeter, described in The Printed Maps of Exeter (still available from the Hertitage Centre in Exeter). Other maps are folding or tourist maps (in or extracted from guides) and described in The Tourist Maps of Devon (privately printed, only a few copies still available).

Over the years I collected maps of other areas and I am also in the process of selling these. You will find a large number of maps:
Leporello maps of the Rhine - long folding maps tracing the course of the river from 1825 to 1900
Great Britain / British Isles - various regional maps
Miscellaneous - maps collected from different sources including several maps of Germany
NEW - Postcards - maps and WW1 and WW2 propaganda. I wide variety of cards with maps (pre-1914), World War 1 propaganda and cards from 1930-1945 predominantly German but also other countries.
I do hope you have a look. Serendipity is a splendid thing!
