+ Click to enlarge
This incredibly detailed map shows Ontario & a portion of Quebec in 1882. It shows the topography, roads and railroads, major cities and towns of the time. Montreal in shown inset. It is a fine example of the beautiful and subtle color lithography used by many European map makers in the latter half of the 19th century. This is a stunning old map by one of the finest printing families of the time, Blackie & Son, in Great Britain.
If you are looking for an unusual piece of art, to decorate a home or office, this truly "limited-edition" print is perfect. Antique maps are extraordinary examples of the 19th Century printing and engraving arts. As conversation pieces they are unequaled. This beautiful old map is an actual snapshot of our history. Any of these, increasingly rare, works of art are also some of the most thoughtful (and personal) gifts you can give. Unlike so many other gifts, antique maps and prints allow you to present someone a piece of their past.
All sizes shown are approximate. Matted maps or prints are smaller than the "matted" dimensions shown by about 6".
All of our authentic, more than 100-year old, maps and prints come double matted within museum quality, archival rag mat boards at NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE.
Due to the INCREDIBLY high shipping prices charged for OVERSIZE shipping, shipping charges may be higher than quoted for items that measure more than a total of 70" (matted height + width). For example a matted piece measuring 32" x 40" would be considered OVERSIZE (72"). For complete delivery information, see Information page.
All our authentic antiques are one-of-a-kind items. Since they are actual old works of art expect small imperfections. In some cases we may have more than one of a particular map or print. Since each is unique they may vary slightly from the item shown (when we have more than one if a particular item, the colors may be different than those shown). Each antique map or print has been dry cleaned by hand and are conservation mounted and protected in attractive rag mats. Every work in our gallery carries a lifetime guarantee of authenticity (authentic antiques only) and a 30-day satisfaction guarantee (see Information page for details). Again, the sizes stated are approximate.
