1858 Barnstable County Wall Map

We have handled a number of these colorful maps in the last few years – selling or restoring them.  Currently, Maps of Antiquity has three available for sale in a variety of prices and condition.  We also offer reproductions of this map in several sizes.  This collectable map was the first depiction of Cape Cod produced commercially showing the Cape and Islands separate from Massachusetts or New England.  Each Cape Cod town had at least one to be used for tax purposes, showing all property owners in Barnstable, Duke and Nantucket Counties in 1858. Filled with remarkable detail and information, this exciting piece is usually difficult to attain due to its rarity.  For more information on our antique 1858 Cape Cod wall maps, click here.

Thank You

We are ending the year on a high note and are very grateful to our customers, staff, vendors, colleagues and friends who have contributed to our growth in 2011.  The business year was a roller coaster ride with a busy summer (the best ever) flanked by slow spring and fall seasons due to sewer construction.  Fortunately, our website business grew tremendously this year and we want to thank our buyers from all over the world who have purchased from us and provided us with such positive feedback.
