This is an exciting time for us at Maps of Antiquity! Today we are announcing our first store-wide sale:
20% off almost everything!*

We are now in our 14th year of selling antique maps and we wanted to thank you for being one of our wonderful customers, for subscribing to our newsletter, or following us on social media. This is a discount that is specially for our past customers and loyal subscribers, and we are not going to advertise it beyond this newsletter and our social media accounts.

We do our best to price our maps fairly to begin with, so we are often the most reasonably priced option. We prefer a simple, straightforward approach: no haggling needed, no door-buster sales, just good value for your money. 

Our website isn't set up to process automatic discounts, so you can get your discount in one of two ways:
A) Call in your order  (1-508-945-1660) and ask for the newsletter discount.
B)  Place your order on our website and, in the Comments box during check-out, ask for the "Newsletter Discount". The website will charge you full price and we will process a refund for your discount afterward. If you want to be sure that the items you are purchasing will be discounted, just give us a call (see the note below).

As always, you can see our recent acquisitions by visiting our Newly Listed category, which is updated as often as we can manage in this busy time of year.  If you are looking for something specific, we recommend using the 'Search' function at the top of our website or the menu on the left side of the web page. We also have a Holiday Gift Ideas section that we will be adding to this season, and our Great Maps - Super Deals category offers our already discounted items.

*Discount does not apply to consignment items, framing, framed pieces, already discounted items. Cannot be applied to prior purchases. Sale ends 11:59pm on December 18, 2019. Dealers: no further discount. 
(Note: most consignment items can be recognized by the item number that starts with CSMT or JJ, but a few have different numbers, such as NAU201JF and NAU131GT, also any item number ending with CN or DS. Please call if you have any questions.)
Holiday Gift Ideas:
(in no particular order)

These chromolithographs pack a lot of interest into a small space, including a map and vignettes of notable monuments, important industries, and even local animals and flowers. Originally included as a collectible in coffee cans, these maps were compiled into atlases of U.S. States and major World countries, which were published in 1890. We sell these matted with our choice of neutral matting.  

We are also offering conservation framing with museum glass for the Arbuckle maps at a truly unbeatable price!

Special Discounts on Special Maps

We have added even more fantastic antique maps and charts to our Great Maps, Super Deals category.  That means big discounts on highly collectible maps. The notable additions are an 1820 chart of the Adriatic, an 1860 British chart of Boston Harbor, a 1626 Speed map of Bermuda, a huge four-part map of North America from 1788, and a British map of North America soon after the Revolutionary War (published in 1806).

New Pictorial Maps!

Pictorial maps are a perennial favorite and some of our new additions are quite interesting! Pictured above are a map of the Presidents from Ohio and a "Sunday School" map of the Life of Christ. Below we have  a famous 1936 map of Peiking (Beijing) that was republished later with annotations in Chinese.


Intriguing Older Maps

Above is a beautifully framed Homann/Dopplemayr celestial map of the Southern Hemisphere from 1780.  We also have recently acquired two sheets from the 1836 nautical chart of Cape Cod Harbor showing great detail of Provincetown and Truro.  We continue to add a good number of significant old maps as we acquire them, so we recommend that you keep an eye on our newly-listed maps!

Coast Report Charts

If you love nautical charts but can't quite afford the prices, then coast report charts are the perfect thing for you! These are printed on light weight paper and folded into report books. They generally focus on harbors and river entrances with great detail. They also look fabulous when hand colored by our local professional colorist!

Bird's Eye View Maps

Bird's Eye View maps come in all sizes and ages-  our oldest was published in 1575! These fun maps give you an unusual view of a city or area and they perfectly straddle the gap between decorative and stately.

More Great Gift Ideas Online

We have curated an interesting selection of maps and prints that might be just the right gift for someone on your list. Whether their interest is in history, architecture, botany, travel, or something else, we probably have something that will be perfect!
