Rare Maps and Prints Online
This is the home of my 'boutique collection' of rare maps and decorative prints. It includes British Topography, Travel, Humour, Satire, Botanical, Natural History, Sporting, Heraldry, Marine, Science and Architecture. All the maps and prints you see in THE COLLECTION are original works, many with fine hand colour from the 16th to 20th centuries.
This is not just a place to buy! If you're new to discovering antique maps and prints there's lots of helpful info over on the 'Resources' page.
Who is Kevin J. Ryan?
I come from a creative background and I've been a passionate collector of antique maps and decorative prints for years. Having amassed a modest collection I decided that I wanted to build an online business, something that would better suit my work life balance and give me the chance to share my passion for maps and prints with others.
To get this kick started I took the plunge and produced a series of short web-tv shows focused on helping a new generation of collectors to discover the truly fascinating world of antique maps and prints. Now I have people from all around the world buying maps and prints from my online website and stores.
