I love maps! So, for me this was a great stop. Looking at all the great old maps they had was fun. Kind of like a museum where you can participate by buying one and taking it home. My wife, on the other hand, couldn't wait for the visit to end. Thankfully they have a nice garden out back where... More

Bought a 1900 map of Waltham MA. Through a couple phone calls and an online purchase, I completed a very smooth transaction from Maps of Antiquity. Map came quickly (albeit with a delay on USPS's part) and arrived as described. Very satisfied and highly recommended!
