Sarah Tyacke and Helen Wallis
Between 1968 and 1978 the Map Library has acquired a number of important and unusual atlases, maps, and globes dating; from c. 1500 to 1850. Although all acquisitions are entered in the published Map Catalogue and in its subsequent accessions parts, this article provides fuller descriptions of some of the more interesting items acquired which, it is hoped, will reach a wider audience. A second article will complete the listing of notable acquisitions for the period 1968-78.
