PICTORIAL MAPS & EPHEMERA: Florida, California & Further Afield... February 2018
Greetings to those attending the Miami International Map Fair at which, due to an only too infrequent reunion of the three booksellers in the Burdon family (two of whom live in Australia), we will not be exhibiting this weekend.
Attached is a brief listing of pictorial maps and ephemera of Florida, California and places further afield. We look forward to being with you in Florida again next year.
We will be exhibiting at the ABAA International Antiquarian Book Fair in Pasadena, California on February 9 to 11 and on March 23 to 25 at the ABAJ Tokyo International Book Fair in Japan. Please let us know if you would like tickets for either of these events.
Where ever this list finds you, we send all best wishes for 2018.

20th Century Pictorial Maps - Old Imprints at the Miami International Map Fair, HistoryMiami 2017
Oldimprints.com will be exhibiting at the Miami International Map Fair at HistoryMiami February 4-5, 2017. This year one of the map fair events, with oldimprints participating, consists of a panel focusing on the institutional, research, and private collecting approaches to the study of twentieth century pictorial maps. It is gratifying to see the growing interest in these colorful and frequently humorous maps, especially as their ephemeral nature often belies their significance as repositories of historical and social interest.
This pdf catalogue is a selection from our latest catalogue of 20th century pictorial maps. The complete catalogue may be viewed online at www.oldimprints.com
Thank you for your interest,
Elisabeth and Craig
