Product Description


Collecting Antique Maps, particularly now that it has a price guide, will serve as a valuable primer... -- Bookdealer, No. 1523, 26th July, 2001

From the Author

Jonathan Potter says, 'With the increasing interest in the press and popularity on television and radio of programmes concerned with antiques and their values, it seemed essential to try and provide answers to the question 'how much is it worth?' As it is impossible to give specific prices for items, which can differ markedly from one example to another, broad ranges are given. It is now possible to look in the book, identify maps of interest and find out what can be afforded, or just dreamt of - the book is now a much more complete collectors' guide.'

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By J. Garside on 3 Aug 2009
This book is excellent in that it has a great deal of vital information for the collector presented in a really interesting way. It covers all the significant map makers, engravers, etc., and has an excellent price guide to give a clear idea of rarity and value. With many beautiful illustrations it is, in my view, the best book of its kind for anyone wishing to enter the world of antique maps.
