Quarter-inch geological map of England and Wales, New Series

Owing to the success of the 'Old Series' of the quarter inch maps it was thought justified to publish a colour-printed edition. The first sheet was issued in 1889 and the remainder were issued by 1896. A second edition of some sheets was subsequently made and there were numerous reprintings. The series was the first regular publication of Geological Survey maps that were in colour-printed form. The series was published between 1906 and 1910 on 23 sheets [some sheets were combined to make 19 physical sheets plus a 'Title sheet' and an 'Index to colours'. Various sheets were reprinted up to 1977. Superseded by the '1:250,000 UTM Series. Geological maps of the UK and continental shelf areas'.

Maps in this series are out of print. Copies can be purchased 'print on demand'. To purchase follow the link on a maps Full record page.
