“Maps as Pocketbooks of Previous Lives”

The International Herald Tribune newspaper ran an article on map collecting in its “Your Money” section, with advice for collectors from various experts, including Tom Lamb, director of Christie’s book and manuscript department in London, London-based map dealer Jonathan Potter, and George Glazer:

“It’s a huge field of study. It’s like looking at birds,” said George Glazer, who owns his own map gallery in New York that features maps ranging in price from $5 to $20,000. Glazer, echoing the advice of others, suggested that aspiring collectors focus on finding maps from specific regions and time periods, understanding that there is a pecking order to how antique maps are valued.
