inscription:-  printed -on- inside front cover I have long been intrigued by old maps, particularly the Ogilby / Road Maps. In later years I hunted for a complete / set of Ogilby's work. // At last I found a genuine and complete volume, which has given / me untold pleasure. ... // ... I hope this small scale but faithful reproduction / of the maps will pass on to you, in part, the great pleasure I / have derived from Ogilby's work. // On this, our 40th Birthday, I ask you to accept as a token of / goodwill, this copy of something so prized by myself. / ...
