Covid-19 Revised Opening Hours – 10am to 5pm
We are pleased to announce that we will be re-opening our shop from Monday 15th June. To reduce risk we have introduced a one way system, with a sanitising station at the entrance. We have altered the layout to allow for a quarantine area for new stock and to allow time each day to clean and restock shelves we will be open from 10:00 to 17:00, Monday to Saturday. (Other times available by appointment)
Please bear with us if there is a queue to enter and please respect social distancing measures for staff and other customers
Antique Maps, Prints and pictures
Our print and map room is a treasure trove for anyone who needs that special image for their wall or as a present. Our stock is extensive and mounted and unmounted prints fill the drawers and file boxes to overflowing.
There are huge numbers of steel and copper engraved plates covering all areas of the world topographically, and then of course particularly the United Kingdom, divided by county. There are prints on all manner of subjects from natural history such as birds and botanicals through to industry, occupations, fashions and just about everything else you can think of.
Our map collection contains county maps dating back to the late 16th century by all the big names in cartography. Although we have a particular interest in the counties around us here in Petersfield (Hampshire, Surrey, Sussex, Dorset, Wiltshire, etc.), we have maps that represent counties and areas all over the country and internationally. If you are looking for a particular map for your collection it would be well worth giving us a call or using the ‘Inquiries’ button to the right hand side of this page.
Although we are very happy to take questions by phone about our print and map stock, the best option is always to visit if you can, allow enough time to look through the thousands of prints we have here and perhaps come away with that thing you didn’t know you wanted!
