antique prints, maps and watercolors

Why pay more at auction?

Have you been following the early 2019 auction results for antique prints and maps? We were very interested to see that the prices paid by purchasers are higher than the prices quoted on our website. Let us serve as your personal curators providing detailed descriptions and additional photographs of pieces that interest you and avoid the 25% buyer’s commission.

This month we are featuring a few of the pieces in our inventory that present exceptional values.

We are increasing our inventory of John James Audubon’s Havell edition of the Birds of America and are offering an especially low prices on one of the animals from his Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America.

We have assembled an impressive collection of George Brookshaw’s beautiful and distinctive engravings of fruit.

We offer a pair of the large Bradbury nature printed ferns framed to match in elegant white gold leaf frames.

The prices of Currier and Ives prints are on the rise. We highlight two here: Quail Shooting and a harness racing print.
