We love antique prints and maps and are delighted to share our enthusiasm and knowledge with those interested in these wonderful artifacts. However, as we are a small shop trying to stay in business, there are professional and practical limits on how much time we can spend offering free advice. Therefore, we have tried to set up as much on-line help as possible for those seeking information about antique prints, maps and related books. If you follow the links below, you may find the answers to your questions, so please try this before contacting us directly.
Reference Library Visit our on-line reference library which contains much information on antique prints and maps and is available for everyone’s use.
Gallery We have tried to include useful information about the items listed in our on-line gallery. If you can find similar items to those you have questions about, you might find your answers here.
Links Our links page lists many sites filled with information on antique prints, maps and related books
If you have looked on-line and still cannot find the answers you seek, you are welcome to contact us directly. We will answer every email query we get to the extent we can within professional limits. As we get hundreds of questions a month, it may take some time before we can respond.
Free help We are happy to provide, at no charge, any information which we can give you “off-the-cuff,” that is, without having to do any research. And as noted below, we will not give out values without charging for an appraisal.
Research If we have to do any research to provide an answer, we must charge for our time at a rate of $175 per hour. We are a small business and cannot afford to spend the time needed to do research without charging.
You may send us an e-mail enquiry or contact us by phone, fax or mail. Please be as detailed and clear as you can when asking your question to avoid our having to write back for further information and so that we can answer your question to the point. Note: do not send digital images via e-mail unless requested to do so.
