FAQ | Printed Large-Sized Maps?
This is the # 1 Frequently Asked Question.
This website *points to* scans of early wall maps and printed atlases held at various repositories (universities and government archives). Prints cannot be ordered, here.
A curator at the Maps Collection of a major university stated that while the maps dated 1850’s to 1880’s are not copyright-protected, any scans, prints or images of the maps are copyrighted to their producers.
Let me know of any officially-produced (book) atlases, posters or wall maps for sale. Here’s a start:
The Brant Co. Museum & Archives in Brantford, ON had some poster-sized old maps. Their website is compromised at present. Will check back.
