Fascinating inventory, fantastic service
Mar 2021 • Solo
Never visited in person but this store is an online-shopping paradise. (I hope to visit someday.) Endless inventory of fascinating historic maps, prints, charts, you name it. Irresistible for those of us who know what a unique, thoughtful gift these items make. Most affordable antiques you can find! Service is extraordinary, everything carefully packaged and delivered super fast. Warning: browsing is addictive. Set aside plenty of time.

A+ The review says it all.
Jul 2020
Purchased a very nice print that I was already familiar with. This one was in better condidion than others I have found and it was MUCH cheaper. I got it for 35 dollars and, for example, another far worse example is online for $750.00. Then they gave me an unsolicited break on shipping! There are print sellers out to get rich on the unsuspecting, and then there is Maps of Antiquity. By the way the print is certainly authentic I would know.

Excellent Service
May 2020
I have purchased from Maps of Antiquity. With antique maps, packaging is very important, since the paper is easy to damage. M of A takes great care in their packaging. My map arrived via insured mail, but the post office had damaged the package. Since it was so well wrapped, the map was still pristine. Thanks!

Lovely postcard and the best service
Mar 2020
I am not a postcard collector but found one at Maps of Antiquity that I intend to give as a gift. It is a vintage postcard from Martha's Vineyard.

The card arrived in perfect condition, was VERY carefully packed and even came with framing instructions. Very thoughtful and professional.

I look forward to visiting them!

Maps of Antiquity is a Must Visit!
Aug 2019
Perri and her team did an outstanding job not only in helping me find the map I was looking for, but also in providing beautiful framing materials. The finished product is just perfect - and they even shipped it for me to NYC. I would recommend them highly!

Amazing selection and quick shipping!

I found a map that was a perfect gift for my 1st anniversary. My husband was blown away by the condition it was in and how special it was. Overall, I bought it toward the beginning of the week and it was sent to me before our anniversary on Friday. Very quick and easy and it arrived in perfect condition.
