Private Collection of Graphical Art - Maps and Prints to Acquire - Website under Development

Terms & Conditions


All maps, views, prints in this catalogue are guaranteed to be authentic prints (woodcuts, engravings, etchings etc.) printed at or about (c.) the given date. Unless stated otherwise they are uncoloured. The term ´original colouring´ means that these items have been coloured at or around their date of publication. (There are no prints are listed, which have been coloured in recent times.)

Description of prints

Because of their antiquity some prints may show marks of use or influences from light or air such as the typical browning of some papers. Most prints listed are in good to excellent shape. To classify the condition of a print we use five categories: 

excellent > very good > good > fair > poor

A detailed description of any print can be obtained on demand, and close up or high resolution photographs (approx. 1 MB) can be sent by eMail (e.g. in JPG-Format).

Size of the prints is given in centimeter (cm), height x width, and usually refers to size of the plate.
If you want to convert: 1 cm = 0,394 inch.

In photographs the ´true´ colours of prints and their paper (including those prints with black and white images) are always very difficult to show. The real colours of the print will usually be slightly different from the photographs in our thumbnails (small images) or the in pop-ups (that come up when you click on the thumbnail). Please ask, if there are questions.
