Antique maps are great fun to collect. If you wish you have a theme to your collecting such as buying maps of your home county or if you have moved about a bit then the counties you have lived in over the years. Or you can just buy the maps that you find exciting just because of perhaps their decoration or their historical interest.

I try to deal with enquiries as quickly as possible. Many orders are sent off the same day if they arrive by mid morning.
You will find details about postage and packing as well as payment methods here. Postage and packing is free to a UK address for all orders over the value of 15 pounds. Orders for under 15 pounds will not be accepted. There is a charge for sending maps overseas, but this is a single amount which covers any number of items.

I started selling antique maps when I was working as an auctioneer at Browns of Chester, Foregate Street, Chester. Burton Tailoring bought Browns and soon afterwards I got a golden handshake of £150 and left. My father helped me greatly to get my business going in Shotton, Flintshire. It started as a postal catalogue business but in the late 1960's I and my father opened up a gallery at 25, Watergate Street, Chester. A lot of shops came and went in the 30 years I was there including Sotheby's who opened on the other side of the road. Since 1998 the business has been on the internet at www.antiquemaps.com
