Maps in this new "Great Maps – Super Deals" section include a selection of some of our valuable or unusual maps and prints that we want to offer at a special price for limited time, about one month. We hope that you will visit this section regularly and that it will inspire you to buy a map that you may not normally buy. This group of maps will change each month.
We are often asked how we price our maps. We use a number of resources which include data bases of map sales to which we subscribe, catalogs, internet research, and our own experience. Factors which go into pricing include: the age and condition of the map, the maker, style, rarity, historical value, and market demand. The goal of our "Great Maps – Super Deals" section is to price a few maps and prints at an even greater value, for a short time.
Our special offers currently feature pictorial maps of the 1930's by Ernest Dudley Chase from Winchester, MA. These collectable, well-illustrated maps include key cities in Europe with sketches of local castles, churches and famous public buildings. Other "Great Maps – Super Deals", in the near future, will include some of our larger wall maps and huge nautical charts.
