THE MERRY, MERRY MONTH OF MAY

Cytifus purpureus Scop,or Purple Broom, by Jacob Sturm, 1808

If you've ever wished that the long-awaited flowers of May could bloom the whole year long, take a stroll through our online inventory of antique botanical prints.  We have many recent additions from Jacob Sturm's "Deutschlands Flora", which was published in 1808, and again in 1828. Many of these are accompanied by a page of fascinating antique text in their original German

ON MAY 10TH, MOM WANTS A MAP

Cape Cod- Barnstable County Massachusetts, by Ashburton Tripp, 1931
Whether you're searching for a map of mom's hometown, alma mater, or her favorite vacation destination, we're here to make Mother's Day shopping a breeze! Our bird's-eye-view, pictorialcomparative, and celestial maps are especially beautiful and popular with the ladies, as are our antique natural history prints. It's the thought that counts! Isn't that what Mom always says? Make this Mother's Day extra thoughtful with a gift you can't get at the mall.  

MAPS FOR CINCO DE MAYO

Mexico, California and Texas, by Tallis, 1851
Although popularly associated with Mexican Independence from Spain (which was declared in 1821), Cinco de Mayo actually celebrates the 1862 Battle of Puebla, during which the outnumbered Mexican Army defeated occupying French forces. Observed regionally in the Puebla state of Mexico, observance of the holiday is more limited elsewhere in Mexico than it is in the Southwestern United States. Celebrate our southern neighbors this year with a stunning antique map of Mexico... and maybe a marguerita or two, too.

MAY 25TH-- MEMORIAL DAY MAPS

Invasion and Total War Victory Maps World War II, by Earnest Dudley Chase, 1942
On May 25th, we celebrate more than just the beginning of bridge traffic here on Olde Cape Cod. More importantly, we recognize the sacrifices of all who have served in America's armed forces. If there's a WWII veteran in your life, he or she may be especially interested in our collection of materials from the Second World War. Civil War buffs will be enthralled by our various maps and prints from that chapter of American history. We even have a number of maps pertaining to the American Revolution. As always, do contact us if we may be of assistance, and have a wonderful holiday weekend.
