Books about antique maps continue to be published. But do not forget some of the excellent reference books that have been published over the past 30 years and more. These can sometimes be difficult to track down. I will continue to add links to interesting books I find and trust that you will find this page of interest and use.

Richard Nicholson

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are the maps old or are they just copies of old maps?
The maps are all genuine early specimens published in or around the year stated. A guarantee label is provided with each map.
How quickly are order sent off?
Orders are dealt with 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.
Is map number --- available?
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
What currency are your prices in?
All the prices on my web sites are in English pounds or pounds sterling.
What is the best way to pay?
There is a Shopping Cart for most of the maps to pay by PayPal. The method of payment I prefer is to check first by email if a map is available then pay the total amount to my bank account and advise me you have done so. You will find my bank details on this page.Telephone orders using your Mastercard or Visa Card are also welcome. Overseas customers may find the PayPal Cart is the easiest way to make purchases because of the exchange is currency which is handled by your card provider. The reason I prefer the bank payment method is simply because the charges to me are far less than the other methods.
Can I call and see the maps?
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. There are from time to time some framed maps for sale and these are available to collect from Christleton.
How many copies do you have of each map?
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.
