|The half-inch map was published from 1903. After 1947 a National, or 'Second Series' was planned but only four of 51 sheets were published. The series was abandoned due to competition from private map publishers and the resources needed for other small scale mapping, especially the one-inch series.|
PLEASE NOTE I have the occasional enquiry through these pages about whether I buy and sell maps. I'm not a map dealer but here to compile and revise lists of Ordnance Survey small scale maps. If you are looking for a trader, I recommend you start with the Charles Close Society list of map dealers here.
