Old London Maps
THESE ARE ORIGINAL ANTIQUE MAPS.
We use the word original to define a map that has been in existence since the date stated and is not a modern reproduction. A solution for the preserving and strengthening of maps is to lay them down on linen or cotton cloth. This method of strengthening maps has been used for centuries, especially on folding maps or those subjected to a lot of handling. It is also used on items that were printed on cheap paper, such as film posters, that were never intended to last for many years and are now in a very delicate condition.
