|PICTORIALLY PERFECT HOLIDAY MAPS|
Our many pictorial maps will delight you and your gift recipient!
For centuries PICTORIAL MAPS have offered their unique cartological perspectives to those with an eye for utilitarian artwork. Many pictorials take a bird's-eye-view perspective, such as these marvelous maps of New York City, Boston, The Charles River, Narraganset Bay, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, The White Mountains, Provincetown, Massachusetts, and even Jamaica! We have many more pictorial maps in stock, most of which were geared toward turn of the 20th century tourists. Our older bird-eye-views include 16th century maps of Nordlingen, Bavaria in Germany and Solothurn, Switzerland, as well as a gorgous early 18th century map of Vienna, Austria.
Equally decorative COMPARATIVE MAPS most often focus on such superalatives as the world's longest rivers, and highest mountains (or both), although some feature comparisons of flora, fauna, lakes and islands, and more! Comparative maps and Pictorial maps make wonderful gifts. They are unusual and impressive and they capture the imagination and ignite interest in almost everyone who sees them!

|Celebrate the Season with Celestials|
A Small Selection of our Splendid Celestial Maps
This is the perfect time of year for star-gazing (is there an imperfect time of year?) and if you are looking for a gift for your favorite amateur astronomer, look no further! Antique CELESTIAL MAPS were made in a variety of colors and styles, so whether you prefer science or astrology, sun or moon, the solar system or the stars, you are sure to find something! A print of the great telescope should please a star enthusiast. A celestial map with someone's zodiac sign makes a thoughtful gift; or perhaps there is a time of year that holds a special event- we have maps of the stars for every season!
