This is the book for a new generation of map collectors.

It provides clear, practical answers to many of the questions collectors face and is beautifully illustrated with maps that can be collected in today’s market.
Whether you are a neophyte or a veteran collector, or just love maps, this book belongs in your library. It is also a gorgeous book that will be equally at home on your coffee table.
