Condition

All of our items are original antique pieces and it is important to keep in mind that many of them have been around for 100 years or more. Individual pieces may have seen many owners and been handled many times over the course of their existence and as a result each piece has developed a history of it's own. Short edge splits (often repaired with archival tape), foxing, discoloration, etc. are all things to expect on items of this type. They rarely distract from the piece and often add to the overall character of the item. Keep in mind when you receive your item that you are not handling a modern copy, you are holding a piece of history, an item that has been around for a very long time and will, with proper care, be around for a long time to come. We try to note any significant flaws in the description, but less noticeable or common characteristics may not be mentioned.

As we are a US based company all of our measurements are in Inches, if you need the size in Centimeters please multiply the supplied measurement by 2.54.

Important information for our International Buyers

  • You may be charged customs, taxes or other import duties by 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 won't under-value merchandise or mark the item as a gift on customs forms. Doing so is against US and International law! Any requests to do this will be ignored. All orders are labeled as merchandise and described as Antique Map (or Print, as appropriate for the order)

  • First Class Mail is the least expensive shipping option available and as such is the slowest.

Please be patient if this is the shipping option you choose, your package will arrive, but it may take time to do so.

  • If you would prefer to upgrade your shipping to the faster Priority or Express mail shipping options we are happy to send you an invoice with the upgraded shipping quote on request.
