Synopsis: Many books about map collecting are simply catalogs of maps: useful for the initiate, but unhelpful and even daunting for the inexperienced collector. This book focuses on the basics of collecting and the needs of the collector by a well-known rare book and map expert. Manasek goes beyond the history of maps and atlases to address the everyday issues collectors face. He explains how to read catalog descriptions and how to judge condition, how to buy and sell and how the market determines prices. He discusses printing techniques; the parts and kinds of maps; care, treatment, and repair; and how to distinguish originals from reproductions. A special section of the book illustrates 130 maps from 1482 to 1945 to give collectors an idea of the wide range of material available. There are also clarifications of non-English and technical terms; special sections on paper, vellum, and their chemistry; and a guide to further resources. This comprehensive guide is a valuable reference for both beginning and experienced collectors.
