This appears to be the first edition of a listing of the world’s map dealers. It was followed by a revised edition of 38 pages in 1980 based on OCLC listings. The present list includes about 275 map dealers with addresses, and, in some cases, hours and specialties.
A nice time capsule of the map trade, with many familiar names of past and present map dealers. While this pamphlet is very well represented in OCLC holdings (probably as a result of having been widely distributed to libraries), we locate no current online offerings of it. [ICN 7648].
