"Last week I sent off for a copy of the current Map Act Navigator. I received the copy in just a few days and have enjoyed reading it (I appreciate the prompt service). I have made it to the Old Maps section thus far and I am impressed. The format is great and it is quite easy to read and understand. While reading, I have been tabbing, highlighting, and under-lining as I find things of importance or of interest. . . . I can see already that your publication will be an important part of my reference library." 

Thank You,
Robert W. Snow
