Much to my surprise, these guys really hit the ball out of the park. These folks really know what they are doing and have access to a vast amount of resources. Who would... More

What a great little shop in Chatham. Maps of Antiquity is housed in a charming old structure, filled with antique prints, maps and documents. The shop owners are just as happy to let you independently browse the merchandise as they are to assist you with any search or question. There is so much of interest to look at, I could... More

Maps of Antiquity has a great stock of maps & prints; I ordered online and was delivered my purchase within days across the Pond; One can see from the care they've given in packaging this fragile print that there is great passion in what they do; thank you to them

I had emailed the store about a couple of maps we had seen on their website, and their responses were always prompt and extremely helpful. When we arrived not only did the map we chose look even better in person, but the frame they had used was amazing quality. One of the owners spent the time to go over the... More
