â€œThe aim of the Map Collectorsâ€™ Circle is to stimulate interest in and publish material on early printed maps, atlases, cartographers, etc.. The emphasis is on material of practical importance designed to assist Collectors, Librarians and Booksellers. The Map Collectorsâ€™ Series is international in scope and character.
Letters containing information, ideas, criticism or queries will be welcomed and answered directly by the Editor-in- Chief, Mr. R. V. Tooley, or printed in occasional publications for membersâ€™ comment and reply. Many of the publications in the Series break new ground, and it is hoped that Members will not hesitate to write correcting or amplifying any of the material contained in the pamphlets.
It is hoped that the Map collectorsâ€™ Circle will foster international appreciation of the printed map and encourage co-operation and good fellowship among its members and all those interested in cartography.â€
