The Perfect Gift

We went into Maps of Antiquity thinking we’d be able to pick out a souvenir map in a couple of minutes for our kids as a gift. However, the owners of the store spent 30 minutes with us picking out the perfect treasure and pirate maps that our kids will love for years to come. If you’re looking for the perfect way to remember your trip to Cape Cod (and don’t want the typical cheesy tourist souvenirs) visit Maps of Antiquity and you won’t be disappointed.

Early Fall, Early Pieces

Some of our earliest antique maps are in surprisingly great condition.  Maps were often bound or hinged into books or folios.  This map of Italy – EUR703 – was printed by Munster around 1542 using drawings of the known world around the time of Christ.
