MAPPY HOLIDAYS - May the Post Office Keep Bringing - Mappy Holidays to you!

Wherever in the world your map gifts are going, we will get them there, weather willing, with the help of the U.S. Postal Service and-- of course-- Mr. Cringle.

In an effort to get your maps and prints to their destinations before December 25th, please consider the following:


CUSTOM FRAMING should be ordered by December 3th for domestic shipping, December 8th for in-store pick-up. A fine selection of pre-framed maps and prints hanging in our shop will be available for last minute shoppers.  We are open daily until December 24th from 10am until 5pm, except for Sundays when we open at noon. 

UNFRAMED MAPS should be ordered prior to Wednesday, DECEMBER 20th for arrival by December 25th. We will continue to ship maps ordered after that date, but cannot make any promises. 

PLEASE NOTE: Because we cannot control any aspect of delivery after a package leaves our shop, we cannot guarantee delivery for Priority mail within a given time frame. If you need a guarantee, please ask about our EXPRESS option.  EXPRESS packages, guaranteed by the U.S. Postal Service, have not always arrived on time due to weather and traffic delays, but they do arrive faster than our usual PRIORITY shipments. Normally, if EXPRESS packages do not arrive within their specified time frames, your shipping charge is refunded. 
Please be aware, however, that this year the postal service has adjusted refund eligibility for shipments mailed December 21-25.

Our many pictorial maps will delight you and your gift recipient!

For centuries PICTORIAL MAPS have offered their unique cartological perspectives to those with an eye for utilitarian artwork. Many pictorials take a bird's-eye-view perspective, such as these marvelous maps of New York City, BostonThe Charles River, Narraganset Bay, Washington D.C., PhiladelphiaThe White Mountains, Provincetown, Massachusetts, and even  Jamaica! We have many more pictorial maps in stock, most of which were geared toward turn of the 20th century tourists.  Our older bird-eye-views include 16th century maps of Nordlingen, Bavaria in Germany and Solothurn, Switzerland, as well as a gorgous early 18th century map of Vienna, Austria

A Selection of our Wonderful Comparative Maps
Equally decorative COMPARATIVE MAPS most often focus on such superalatives as the world's longest rivers, and highest mountains (or both),  although some feature comparisons of flora, fauna, lakes and islands, and more!  Comparative maps and Pictorial maps make wonderful gifts.  They are unusual and impressive and they capture the imagination and ignite interest in almost everyone who sees them!  Click on any of the blue words to see more!

Celebrate the Season with Celestials

A Small Selection of our Splendid Celestial Maps

This is the perfect time of year for star-gazing (is there an imperfect time of year?) and if you are looking for a gift for your favorite amateur astronomer, look no further!  Antique CELESTIAL MAPS were made in a variety of colors and styles, so whether you prefer science or astrology, sun or moonthe solar system or the stars, you are sure to find something!  A print of the great telescope should please a star enthusiast.
