antique maps & illustrations

The antique maps and prints we carry represent a creative alliance of art and craftsmanship that flourished from the early seventeenth century to little more than a hundred years ago. The beautiful old woodblock prints, the intricate copper and steel engravings, the etchings and early lithographs...this is how our forefathers preserved and shared the knowledge of the world in which they lived. Hold a genuine, century-old engraving in your hands today and you feel the weight of history, the texture of another time. Like any objet d'art of limited supply, these images can only rise in value.
