Buy Reproduction Copies of These Fine Old Maps
The maps on this site are reproductions taken from high resolution digital scans of the originals. They are available for purchase as decorative prints for mounting and display or may be useful in genealogy. The maps are clear and colours bright. There is some staining and antique discolouration as would be expected of such old documents, this is faithfully reproduced and adds to the atmosphere of the reproduction prints.
The printed detail is far greater than reproduced on this web site, to produce a more accurate scan would result in huge file sizes.
Please note maps are supplied as the print only and are UN-mounted and UN-framed, the example to the right is shown for illustration only with a single mounting board and dark oak frame. Dark green mounting board is recommended as it suits the colours well and is authentic of the period.
Reproduction prints are on heavyweight textured *192g/sqm paper. Archival quality paper and inks have been used, the combination of which gives an estimated lifespan of at least 75 years.
