What is an antique print or map?
Antique Prints & Maps are maps printed or drawn at least 100 years ago. We call prints and maps that are less than 100 years old but over 50 years old, “vintage”
Over 95% of the prints and maps that we sell are antique. The remainder are vintage but usually produced using antique print and map methodology.
We do not sell reproductions.
How is the date of an antique print or map determined?
Many antique prints and maps include the date the item was published while the book where the print or map came from has the date on the title page. Often, if this information is not available we research the print or map until the exact date of publication is determined. Sometimes if the exact date cannot be found, we describe the print or maps date of publication as c1900. The “c” is short for “circa”.
