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.

 Product Information
We specialize in supplying original maps and reproductions of the rarer maps, all dissected and hand laid onto 100% natural cotton cloth. All of them are supplied in handmade slipcases covered in marbled paper taken from our collection of original papers dating back to circa 1700.
