Photos of some of my recent orders sent out
The maps are all genuine early specimens published in or around the year stated. A guarantee label is provided with each map.
Orders are dealt quickly. Orders received in the morning are usually sent off the same day as I receive them. Failing this it is usually the next day.
The web site is updated daily and sold items are removed so it is most likely that the map is available. You can always email me to check availability
All the prices on my web sites are in English pounds or pounds sterling.
The best way is to email me to check a map is available then pay the total amount to my bank account and advise me you have done so. Telephone orders using your Mastercard or Visa Card are also welcome. Overseas customers may find the PayPal Cart the easiest way to buy. The reason I prefer the bank payment method is simply because the charges to me are far less than the other methods.
I am sorry, no. I had a map and print shop in the centre of Chester for 30 years. Since closing the shop the business is postal only except for the few maps that are available only for collection from Christleton.
I only have one specimen of each map offered. If I had a second similar specimen it would be offered separately under a different reference number.
Yes there is a section of its own that offers a slection of modern prints for wall decoration. This is something that I no longer buy but harks back to the time when my father and I had the gallery in Watergate Street, Chester. When we first opened we did not think that the shop would be viable just selling antique maps and prints. In fact we started with antique furniture, ceramics, silver, weapons and lots of strange things in the floor area whilst the walls were covered in maps and prints. Then it changed over the years to antique maps and prints including a selection of modern prints. I would point out the stock of Portraits of Britain I have at prices well below what the publishers are selling them for now. Plus a selection of views by Mads Stage

I have been buying and selling antique maps since the early 1960's during which time I had a gallery in Watergate Street, Chester for 30 years. I am now able to offer through my websites a personal service to map and print collectors.
