Cambridge Antiquarian Society Maps digitisation Project

CAS have initiated a project to scan county and Cambridge maps from the 17th century. They may be downloaded from https://www.camantsoc.org/maps/
This is a detail from :
Langley’s New Map of Cambridgeshire. 1817.
Inset engraving of Clare Hall. Coloured. Langley & Belch prin & publ.. Sc about 5 miles to 1 inch. 24 x 16.5 cm.
These maps come from CAS’s own collection, which is largely that bequeathed to the Society by Hugh Gatty (1907-48), Fellow and Librarian of St John’s College, Cambridge, and cover the ‘historic’ (pre-1974) county (i.e excluding the former Huntingdonshire).
Private researchers are welcome to use them as they wish: the Society would be delighted to have additional details of and comments on individual maps.
There are no copyright restrictions on their commercial use (e.g in publications), but an acknowledgement of their source would be welcomed.
