Price: $14.00

Publisher: State Road Department of Florida: 1952

Seller ID: 0137

Condition: Fine


Crisp, clean, seemingly unused, map of Florida -- just the thing for a 50's road trip. What's neat about it is that you could use the front address lines and send it back home to friends and family. This one, however, was not sent.The map sports color photos and when folded is larger than the maps issued by the service stations. Closed it meaures 5"x8-1/2". There's extra tourist info too, such as a list of the meanings of Florida Indian names. Note on front -- "Drive saf... View more info

Small Coloured Relief-Panorama of the Rhine With Text Inserted No. 2 (1931)

By: N/A

Price: $20.00

Publisher: Hoursch & Bechstedt: 1931

Seller ID: 0501

Condition: Very Good


This is a magnificent travel item hiding its beauty between a rather bland cover. As soon as you open it out spills 11 panels which together give you a look at the Rhine and its towns from Colgne to Mainz in bold jewel-like colors. Each panel includes text artfully blended against the background to provide a bit of history, an attraction or two, and the population of each town. Very nice addition to a Golden Age travel collection View more info

Enormous navigational chart which measures 36"x48" yet folds up to a neat 9"x12". It's very clean and crisp with just a little browning to a couple edges on reverse side. There is also a wrinkle at a panel which looks like it may have ocurred during printing. Soundings recorded in feet. Very nice overall. View more info

Seller ID: 0868

Condition: Good


I must admit that I had no idea what magnetic declination was when I bought this booklet. The mystery of it intrigued me and I'm forever attracted to huge maps in small booklets. As it turns out, magnetic declination refers to the angle on the horizontal plane between magnetic north (the direction in which the north end of a compass needle points), and true north (the direction along a meridian towards the geographic North Pole). Apparently this angle varies depending on... View more info

Publisher: Cheltenham and London, Ed. J. burrows & co. Ltd.: circa 1930's

Edition: Third Edition

Seller ID: 1146

Condition: Very Good


A little toning around the edges is all that detracts from this attractive map which shows a tape attached to the map with a grommet for easier reading. The map is surrounded by local ads which add greatly to the sense of the era. Map measures 6-1/4"x10"closed and 23-1/2"x25" fully opened. View more info

Publisher: Richmond, Virginia, Department of Highways: 1937

Edition: March, 1937

Seller ID: 1355

Condition: Very good


Huge map measuring 18"x31" when completely unfolded, but folds down back down to a handy 5"x8". The map is quite nice on both sides, as one of the reverse section shows small photographs of Virginia's attractions. There are no tears or writing. The only fault is a few light spots of toning to cover. Overall, quite nice. View more info

Atlas de Columbia; Una Contribucione al Majer Conocimiento de Nuestro Pais

By: N/A

Price: $24.00

Publisher: Columbia, Superarmericana Editions Colina: 1960's

Seller ID: 1390

Condition: Very good


Very clean, crisp book measuring 5"x"7". Only fault is a faint shadow to front cover from a price sticker. There is no date, but research indicates that these were published in the 1960's. Language is SPANISH, but there is no real text -- just lists and charts of statistics, all of which show places and numbers only, so they are easily read by English speaking readers. The maps are located at the front, 44 in all -- and all in full color. View more info

Seller ID: 1451

Condition: Very good


I love when I can find a portfolio of prints and ALL the prints are in it. This is the fruit of a lucky day because here we have a giant portfolio measuring 20" across x 16" tall and all six maps are accounted for. The maps are very clean with no tears and are beautiful with the lavish color of the periods. The portfolio itself had a few small tears, all of which I have repaired with almost invisible, non-browning archival tape at back. The maps are as follows: The Map o... View more info

Seller ID: 1923

Condition: Fine Map in Good Envelope


A colorful map printed as an adjunct to ROTC textbooks. The date printed on the map at lower corner is 1935. The map folds nicely into its original envelope which measures 6-1/2" x 9-1/2". I ironed the envelope and repaired a tear with archival tape and it's quite clean and useable now. Only real fault is loss of corners to flap. The map is crisp with no tears and enormous at 31" across and 33-3/4" high. There are a couple small spots of foxing to margin, but overall it'... View more info

Price: $145.00

Publisher: Unknown Location, Johnson and Ward: circa 1863

Edition: later printing

Seller ID: 1997


The 1862 map of the territories of Washington and Oregon is a lovely thing with its hand coloring and handsome double face font for lettering. If you look in the lower corner you see the number 57 which indicates it was the 57th plate in Alvin J. Johnson's New Illustrated Family Atlas published originally by Johnson and Browning in 1862. The question is when was this particular one printed? It states on the map that the publisher was Johnston and Ward which means it's ar... View more info

ISBN: 7805448280

Condition: Very good condition


Enormous map -- it measures when completely open at 29-1/2" tall and 42" wide. The best part though is the paper it's printed on. It's heavy, glossy, and very easy to fold back up. The scale is 1:6 000 000. Folder measures 8" x 11" and is also very clean. Only faults are minor small creases to outer corners. View more info

Publisher: New York City, Hill Specialties: 1940's

This is a clever little gizmo made by Hill Specialities and sold to businesses which had them printed with their own company names. This one is advertising "Margo Fine Wines, Make Every Meal A Banquet!" ad the retailer, Bisceglia Brothers Corporation, Philadelphia. The map can be viewed in micro by using one of the eleven tabs seen at front. To see the whole map and go macro you pull out the cardboard pieces like an accordinan.

Small hard cover vistors' guide which sports two large maps -- one in black and white of 1876 Philadelphia and the other a colorful panorama of the grounds of the exhibition. Both maps are good sized -- see photo of the fairgrounds map in full color below. What I love about this particular book is the inscription written by the owner who actually went to see the spectacle. In pencil she wrote, "Mother and Grace visited the exposition in July, 1876. Keep it 'til 1976!" Th... View more info

Seller ID: 3063

Condition: Very good condition


The thing I like about folded maps is that moment when it unfolds in all its glory -- especially if the colors are strong and the size is huge. This one is THAT one -- yellow and blue domination and a whopping 28" across and 34" tall. When folded it measures 4-1/2" x 9-1/2". A former owner wrote his name on the top in pencil, but I never like to erase that sort of thing, but you can if you want. There's also a travel stamp that makes it look official. View more info

Nautical charts are interesting and this one is huge. The folder is a bit toned and has a couple small abrasions -- one at upper left hand corner at front and one on back of the folder at the middle left. Both sides of it offer extended information. I opened the map to its length and measured it at 15" x 57" long (see photos). The map is pristine with no tears to folds -- no defects at all. The map's scale is 1.40.000 nautical miles.There's also a brochure inside with a... View more info

Seller ID: 3612

Condition: Fine condition, all parts working


This is the cleverest travel guide I've ever seen. I have had pop-up maps, but not with a 64 page guide in color, a pen nestled inside the spine and a flip-top cap above the pen which houses the compass. It's a great size at 4" x 6" too, perfect for carrying around. The contents say, "See it, buy it, watch it, taste it, know it, note it, index it, and speak it! Sounds like a vacation! View more info
