Scottish Ordnance Survey Second and Third Edition Maps

These gorgeous Second and Third Edition maps are in remarkably good condition, with only very minor bumps to the covers and the maps mostly pretty-much “as-new”.

Each one is bound in a black, leather, book-style cover with marbled linings. The maps are dissected and mounted on cloth.

We currently have about a hundred sheets left covering much of Scotland and the Scottish Islands.

There is very little difference between the Second and Third Edition sheets but the Second Editions date from around 1890-1900 and the Third Editions about ten years later. Full details on specific sheets can be provided on request.

1:50 000 First & Second Series & Landranger Maps

We now have in stock around five hundred 1:50 000, First and Second Series Landranger maps covering most of Scotland, England and Wales. Our standard price for these is £5.75 including p & p but discounts are available for quantities of 2 or more.

The 1:50 000 map arrived in the 1970s to succeed the highly successful One-Inch Seventh Series. The First Series was simply a photographic enlargement of the Seventh Series but this was soon replaced by a redrawn Second Series.
Rapidly renamed the Landranger, the 1:50 000 cover progressed from  all-pink to photographic covers, with the most recent generation given a sharpened design make-over.
