7<p>These maps are scanned from a personal collection built up by Richard
8Fairhurst, the result of several years' scavenging in second-hand
9bookshops! Some are canvas, some folded paper, some flat; some are the
10New Popular Edition proper, but a few are War Office editions. These are
11scans of real, used documents, not a pristine 'for the record'
12collection.</p>
