Antique maps & prints are wonderful images of our past. Over the years, as populations grew, quicker printing methods evolved. Antique prints and maps were often created by using more than one printing process for one printing plate - particularly for portraits. For more information on the making of antique prints and maps, visit our website Library and Blogs.

We sometimes receive enquiries as to an item's value. As with all commodities, antique prices fluctuate. Value of artwork depends on quality, condition and rarity. When selling at auction an item can be 'passed in' (unsold if no one makes a bid) or it can realize a record price if more than one person is keen to buy.

By definition antique items are over 100 years old - but are sometimes 400 years old. Antique maps and prints are paper-based and easily damaged. We aim to sell items in good condition. If condition is not important to you, there are half-price sections below antique maps and antique prints category headings. Handled with care, antique engravings and antique lithographs can survive for hundreds more years.

All artwork can be protected by framing with conservation materials so that impurities from framing materials do not 'bleed' into the artwork over time. U/V (ultra-violet) protective glass preserves the material and the colour. Framing with conservation materials also preserves the colours of modern printing inks.

In Australia the current Antiques and Collectables magazine has an Antique Print Club feature on the exceptional hand-coloured bird lithographs of John Gerrard Keulemans - usually signed JGK. Check out our Blog. Keulemans' lithographs have been temporarily moved to the top of each section of birds. Of the 600 bird lithographs forThe Birds of Australia, only 163 were done by Keulemans - until he was too ill to continue. (Butterflies is the subject in next Antiques and Collectables magazine - with newsagents early June.)

Our Blogs describe and illustrate many different subjects. 
Gift Vouchers are available for others to choose for themselves.
