Guaranteed Authentic!
We do not sell modern reprints.

Condition:

We only handle, sell& ship original vintage and antique items. Old sheets of paper, printed long ago. Items which are really old, like we say. Not modern copies or modern reproductions. It's amazing how many people still ask us if an item is truly old & genuine.

We strive to describe our items accurately.We understand you cannot see it in person. We are trying to present it accurately and convey condition correctly withcareful digital photography, accurate flat-bed scans of the item which are zoomable, precise printed sheet &image sizes and knowledgeable descriptive words.

It is important to understand & remember that many old printed paper items survive merely by chance, and all are somewhat unique if you inspect them closely. Few of the same typematch exactly if compared side-by-side. Each has it's own characteristics and patina, sometimes the differences are minor, other times quite noticable.

Individual pieces have typically seen numerous owners and been handled many times over the course of their existence.On old sheets of paper, short edge splits (which are often carefully repaired with discrete small pieces of archival tape), light foxing, minor age discoloration, etc. are all things to expect.It's often unrealistic to expect an old sheet of paper to survive looking like new or without flaws. The key to any printed sheet is the overall visual appeal of the piece. Oftensmallsigns of agedo not distract but rather they often add to the overall visualcharacter. Big Little Books of the 1930's come to mind as an example of this, as do old maps with small minor old paper repairs on the verso, etc.

Keep in mind when you receive your item that you are not handling a modern copy, norsome clever modern reprint, or so on. You are holding a genuinepiece of printed graphic history,an old sheet of paperthat was printed long ago and will, with some basic proper care, be around for a long time yet to come. In the meantime, you can visually enjoy it in your portfolio, hang it on your wall, give it as a present, etc.

We really do tryto note anyvisually significant flaws in the description.Less noticeable, subtleor common minor age flaw characteristics may not be specifically mentioned, although often they are clearly visible within the zoomable scans or close-ups provided.Please look closely, do your research if needed, and ponder it before you click the buy-it button.

Virtually all old sheets of paper display some sort of visible age wear somewhere, and any attempt to capture every last one of them in words would just end in either mentalor physical grid-lock. Short minor closed edge splits, uneven blank side margins (of no significance 99% time), obvious narrow margins, light typical scattered age spotting, inoffensive light dampstaining in blank margins, etc. are all often not commented upon, as they are mostly not worthy of specific mention. Rather, their presence is reflected in the overall grade of the item, which carries more weight.

We do not use superlatives, we do not overgrade, misrepresent,or puff an item up. We grade conservatively since we want you to be pleased when it arrives. This is our commitment to you.

In an attempt to capture the essence of each item, we usea hand-full of simple clear categories. These range from:Fair (or lesser), Good / Good+, near VG to VG,VG+/ near Fine & Fine.

Fair means with some flaws as mentioned. It doesn't mean horrible or excellent. Possibly not for gift-giving, but entirely acceptable if the item is uncommon or scarce or you really like it. Many fine institutions around the world own paper items in far worse condition than most of the items we sell.

When we say "Good" or "Good+", it means basically "quite OK" , "nice" and in our opinion "entirely acceptable for most people" in overall appearance. It does not mean stunningly excellent or virtually like new, nor does it imply lousy, defective, poor, etc. Those lesser conditions are either avoided in acquisition or clearly noted if offered, as are the higher grades.

Very Good to Very Good+ (VG & VG+) mean quite nice. It means thatwe would happily buy this item for our own collection.

"Near Fine" is used only sparingly, not thrown around lightly, and means approaching excellent,probably nicer than most other surviving similar examples.Likely the item is notperfect, it likely posseses some minor trivial age-related flaws, or has minor blank margin issues, perhaps some light visible spotting, etc. But when you have it before you, it is clearly worthy of ownership, display, perhaps a museum or an advancedcollection, etc.

These basic condition distinctionshould be understood before you order from us. They reveal much about the item being offered. Please keep them in mind as you are considering any item. Please do not buy an item described as "Good+ to near VG" and then complain there are minor splits or age spots in the blank margins.

There are a few buyers who still who act surprised or get upset when they learn many, if not most, old maps offered for sale come from atlases (like Mercator, Ortelius, and most loose old maps do, etc)... or that many old printswere actually first issued within books (which today are now rare, expensive and widely sought after- for instance, Audubon, most 19th century color plate books, etc.). For the record, we never "break" fine copies of old books or atlases which are better preserved as objects. Their scarce market position & commensurate high prices do not allow this to occur. Much of our inventoryhas beenacquiredeither loose, in large batches, or from stray defective or poor condition odd volumesover the past28+ years and we remain very active & strong buyers today.

Remember, you can return anything you buy from us without quibble for 14 days. How fair is that?

We are a U.S. based internetbusiness. All of our measurements are in inches (not metric). If you need the size in Metric/ Centimeters please multiply the supplied inches measurement by 2.53.

Payment and Shipping

  • We happily accept PayPal!

  • Payment is appreciated within 5 days. Why buy something and then not pay for it? Please wait until you are ready to pay before you buy something.

  • Once payment has been received we do our best to make sure all orders are shipped withintwo business days and most often have them shipped within one. Sometimes, we ship within hours. Your order goes out promptly, protected, with basic tracking details and transit insurance!

  • We send a payment confirmation and a copy of the Paypal paymentto the email address associated with your PP payment.

  • All orders are shipped well protected in sturdy tubes or flat white mailers (depending on size) via the U.S. Post Office.

  • Large items are far better sent rolled than flat. Large flat items are particularly susceptible to damge and require so much extra sturdy packing they become very heavy and cost a small fortune to ship. Our tubes will arrive undamaged, your items well protected in transit, within a plastic bagand ready for your inspection.

  • Please be aware that once we have shipped your order we no longer have any control over shipping time or delays. Some people appear to believe we control all aspects of global shipping on all parcels we send, but unfortunately this is not the case.

  • We are unable to ship to any address other than what appears on your PayPal Payment.Please be sure that this address is correct at the time of checkout. Please do not pay with one address, then email us to send it somewhere else.Sorry, can't and won't do it.

  • Once your order has been paid for we are, unfortunately,unable to "Hold it". We are required by to ship within 2 business days of receiving payment and we typically ship much faster than that. This is part of how they rate sellers.

World Wide Flat Rate Shipping-

  • US Domestic Shipping-First Class mail-- $1.95 for first item + $1 each item after. Priority available starting at $4.95 first item, then typically $1 each therafter (unless heavy or huge).

  • Shipping to Canada-First Class mail-- $5.95 for first item + $3 for each item after. (so shipping 3 prints = $11.95, 10 prints =$32.95, etc.)

  • All other International Shipping- $5.95 for first item + $3 for each item after for First Class mail. (so shipping 3 prints = $11.95, 10 prints =$32.95, etc.)

Please note- this shipping cost is obviously less than our true cost. No matter how many items you buy, for sure it will cost us more than we are charging. If the check-out system charges you too much for what-ever reason, just bring it to our attention--- we'll happily work with you to refund when we ship your item(s).

Important information for our International Buyers:

  • You may be charged customs, taxes or other import duties by your country! [this has nothing at all to do with us. Please do not hold us responsible if your Government wants to collect tax when you buy something outside of your country].

  • Import duties, taxes, and customs fees are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are normally collected by the shipping service when the package is delivered or when you pick the item up. They are the buyer's responsibility and are not additional shipping charges. [Please understand they have nothing to do with us and we have no control over them].

  • Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to offerding or buying. [We do not know about rules of your Customs office.There are a lot of countries in the world with complex detailed laws in languages we don't read. Plus these laws are constantly being changed & revised].

  • We won't under-value merchandise or mark the item as a gift on customs forms. Doing so is against US and International law! Please don't ask. Any requests to do this will be ignored. All orders are labeled as merchandise and described as a printed old/ antiquepaper item. [again, please do not ask us to mis-represent International mail parcels].

  • First Class Mail is the least expensive shipping option available and as such is the slowest. In addition to this we have seen longer delays in customs in recent months-- it can take as much as 6-8 weeks to arrive.

  • Please be patient once we ship Internationally--your package will arrive, but it may take time. You can't be in a rush to receive an item if you live outside the U.S.A. International mail is efficient & 99.9% accurate, but it is not typically fast.

  • If you would prefer to upgrade your shipping to faster Priority options we are happy to send you an invoice. Our experience tells us Priority International post is often slower than First Class. It's backwards, and typically only makes sense if the parcel has value exceeding a certain level or extra security is desired.
