This is the book for a new generation of map collectors. It provides clear, practical answers to many of the questions collectors face. What do condition descriptions really mean? Is the color on a map old or modern? Where and how can I research a map? What are the factors affecting prices?
This revised and expanded edition builds on Frank Manasek's groundbreaking first edition, adding new content and filled to the brim with full-color illustrations. The completely revised Map Gallery provides a chronological survey of the changing styles of cartography - from medieval concepts and the familiar antiquarian charts to whimsical pictorial maps of the 20th century. Rather than focusing on the rare and obscure, these are maps that can be collected today.
Whether you are a neophyte or a veteran map collector, or just love maps, this book belongs in your library. It is also a book that will be equally at home on your coffee table.
