Purchase Policies & Procedures

Maps, books, prints and other materials  may be ordered by telephone or via email. You may also make an appointment to see any item in person. I participate in several antique book and map shows each year and you may purchase from me in person at these venues. 

Payment may be by check or credit card.  Your map will be mailed once payment is received in full and funds have cleared. The price of a standard size map includes packaging and handling. Postage by U.S. Mail or commercial carrier is charged to buyer at cost.  Fragile items, antique atlases, wall maps or maps larger than approximately 20 x 24 inches require special packaging and fees for this packaging will be quoted individually and charged to buyer.

Returns may only be made if the item does not conform to the published description, provided both in text and photograph. Refunds will be given if the returned item is in the same condition as it was when sent from Original Antique Maps. Returns must be made within ten (10) days of receipt. Returns must be mailed at the expense of sender, insured in the amount of the purchase price and received by Original Antique Maps in good condition in order to satisfy the terms of refund.

International sales, including questions regarding items, personal inspection by an agent or representative and shipping will be handled on a case by case basis.

Requests for a price quote on listed materials or materials viewed at a show will be answered in writing and the price quote is good for ten (10) business days.
