9<h1>Licence</h1>

11<p>These maps are scanned from a personal collection built up by Richard
12Fairhurst, the result of several years' scavenging in second-hand
13bookshops! Some are canvas, some folded paper, some flat; some are the
14New Popular Edition proper, but a few are War Office editions. These are
15scans of real, used documents, not a pristine 'for the record'
16collection.</p>
