Hello, Map Friends!
The end of October is upon us and we will be sad to see this lovely month go. It has been a busy and interesting time here at the store and we are looking forward to sharing some new items with you below.

Did you know that we always have more new maps in the Newly Listed section than we could possibly feature in an email? It's always a good idea to take a browse through all the new items so you don't miss anything!

Cape Cod is a great place for Halloween fun! Many towns will be holding activities for kids this weekend - the Cape Cod Chamber has a list .
Below we shall highlight some exciting new maps, but you can always visit our Newly Listed Maps section to see everything from the past month or so. We have a Great Maps - Super Deals category that offers our discounted items. And don't forget that we also have a category specifically for maps under $100!
If you are looking for something specific, we recommend using the search function or the "Filter By" function on the left side above the listings to search within a category.

Morden Maps
These large-format English county maps from around the end of the 17th Century show towns, villages, country estates, roads, and more. Many have handsome decorative cartouches. They are undated and it is unclear in which edition of Camden's "Britannia: Or a Chorographical Description of Great Britain and Ireland Together with the Adjacent Islands..." (1695 or 1722) each map was published. We have recently listed 12 of Morden's maps on our website.
Cornwall, England
Oxfordshire, England
North Wales
Westmoreland, England
Historical New York City
Filled with historical notes from the Revolutionary era, including several relating to Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, this pictorial map brings early New York City to life in a new way. Vibrant original color and excellent condition make this a highly collectible map!
New Reproductions of the Oldest Cape Cod Maps!
We are beyond excited to offer these early maps of Cape Cod towns. We have high-quality giclée prints of maps from 1795 and 1831 for most Cape towns. These were manuscript maps made for government purposes and never published or circulated, so it is impossible to get an original, but these reproductions look great framed, and no one needs to know!
A Map of Eastham (and Orleans) in 1795
(Orleans was incorporated as a town in 1797)
Plan of the Towns of Harwich and Brewster 1831
Dennis, County of Barnstable 1795
Plan of the Town of Wellfleet in the County of Barnstable 1831

Plan of the Town of Falmouth in the County of Barnstable 1831

Antique prints are delightful in so many ways. Whether they are delicately hand-colored, carefully etched, or the animals depicted simply make you smile, these prints are a welcome addition to a home's décor. These engravings were produced around 1800 and there are seven more of similar prints among our Newly Listed items.
Lighthouse Maps
These interesting U.S. government maps document the locations of all of the lighthouses, including the arc of light- the area around them from which the light was visible to ships at sea. Lighthouses were incredibly important, not only to warn ships of potential dangers, but also to help locate the position of a ship along the coast. We have some neat new charts, including river charts for the Mississippi and Ohio rivers!
1896 - Sixteenth LH District - Mississippi River
1902 - Lighthouse Chart of the Hawaiian Islands
1902 - Puerto Rico - Third L.H. Subdistrict West Indies between the Mona and Virgin Passages comprising Porto Rico and Dependencies
