Abstract: In this note we consider spatiality of directed inverse limits of spatial locales. We give an example which shows that directed inverse limits of compact spatial locales are not necessarily spatial. This answers a question posed by John Isbell. We also give a condition which, if satisfied by the maps of a directed inverse system, implies that taking limits preserves local compactness and hence produces spatial locales.
