Maps and Charts

Utilitarian in design and intent, early maps are treasured by collectors both for their aesthetic beauty and insight into the past. Antique maps are profound historic indicators, bearing witness to the constantly shifting relationship between human beings and the known world. Whether they are kept as reminders of places once visited or as nostalgic relics of another time, antique maps serve as a visual testament to the enduring strength of the bond between people and the places they inhabit.
