These maps fall into two categories. The majority are taken from highly detailed 25" maps and are scale reduced to approximately 15" to the mile. Almost all include notes on the history of the area by leading historians with details of principal residents and trades. The second category, which are the one inch to the mile scale, cover a wider area but with of course, far less detail. However they give an overall picture of a district and include villages for which a large scale map could not be justified.
