Showing items in Maps, Prints, Photographs Ephemera

All maps and prints are guaranteed originals.  I do not sell reproductions.

 

Collecting maps and prints is becoming increasingly difficult as sources of supply dry up.  My stock is mostly concentrated on the Caribbean. You will also find old photographs and posters here. I am keen to purchase fine engraved West Indies prints and C17th and C18th Caribbean maps.

Post and packing is extra.  Orders are packed carefully and covered by my insurance.    Costs are kept to a  minimum. Payment can be made by credit card (VISA or Mastercard), Sterling or U.S. dollar cheque.

Images have been cropped close to the frame of the map to keep file sizes reasonably small.  Actual margins will be greater unless noted in the description
