About Our Antique Maps
Vintage maps, including panoramic (bird’s eye view) and traditional projection maps, such as our world maps, are elegant and historic pieces of art found in many of the countrys best museum collections. These files are high-quality digital scans of the actual antique maps. Please check the image carefully to make sure it serves your needs.
The early days of mapmaking highlighted the pioneering spirit of a bygone era. Capturing the romance and wonder of the newly explored world, these classic maps represent the unbridled ambition, optimism and excitement of the time.
Business leaders, politicians and the military have used maps to exert their influence and define their ambitions. Newly established frontier towns in America used panoramic maps to attract settlers, and now you can purchase this vintage art reproduction to add to your decor, show a historic sensibility, or simply to start a conversation.
