This October, we're adding additional maps to our online SALE section. Although we do not, as a rule, discount our maps, there's only so much space in the 18th-century farmhouse that Maps of Antiquity calls home and we must make room for new materials! As a result, we've discounted such treasures as Speed's 1610 map of Leicester; both Countye and Citie describe, The Honorable Famylies that have had titles of Earls thereof, Jansson's 1640 Albis Fluvius Germania celebris, A Fontibus ad Ostia showing the course of the Elbe River in Germany from the North Sea to Prague, Hermann Moll's beautifully detailed map of South America, circa 1740, and the restored Beers map of New York and Vicinity. Take advantage of these deep discounts before somebody else does!

Time travel, it turns out, is considerably simpler than Einstein suggested.
With our collection of antique engravings, you may now stroll through Octobers past, pausing in 1871 to admire steamships on the Mississippi in A General View of the City from East St. Louis, cautiously approach Broad Street during the Panic of October 1873,  marvel at the difference a century can make while Hunting the Polar Bear or perfecting your Golf Swing in 1895. Matching the month and day to your own special dates, these prints make such thoughtful birthday and anniversary gifts. We have many more in our shop than are listed online. Let us know if you need help finding a particular place or time.

Brush up on your geography with our fascinating antique school & wall maps. The former were used for tax and municipal purposes, & those of you who attended school prior to the computer age likely recall the latter pull-down type, usually on rollers with springs. Both were lithographed on multiple sheets, brightly hand colored, & varnished for protection, as the temptation to touch maps was (&-- let's face it-- still is) often overwhelming. To fully appreciate their size and scope, these pieces really must be seen in person
