Talk: Antique Map Collecting 101Sunday March 10, 2019
2:00 PM until 4:00 PM
Antique Map Collecting 101: Foxing, soiling, and worm holes, oh my!
Guest speaker. Brian Tims, Founder and Officer of CMS.
Are you intrigued by old maps, and perhaps collect them too? Are you confused and tongue-tied by jargon such as "foxing" or "neat line", or simply not sure where to start or how to develop your collection? Come join us as Brian Tims of the Connecticut Map Society enlightens us about collecting (and, most importantly, enjoying) antique and vintage maps of all types. Brian will be your sherpa as he walks you through the land of collecting, including how to define your collection, where to search for and acquire maps, evaluating them, negotiating, and preserving your collection.
This event is free and open to the public. Bring a friend, or two!
