First I hope everyone has survived winter and are now looking forward to a long hot summer.
Before summer really starts though we have the best of the map fairs in London on the 7th & 8th of June 2014 at the Royal Geographical Society in Kensington Gore.
As usual I will be in the Drayson room.
If you are in or around London at that time you should pop in not necessarily to buy but to see the best selection of exceptionally good and rare maps.
Entrance is free and there is a good snack bar for lunch.
