According to the inscription on the back, this was first published in 1887, 1893 and/or 1901. I’m not sure which date is accurate. Maps were my late husband’s bailiwick – he loved them! He also loved any history relating to various wars, although WWII was the one he was most interested in.
The photos give a better explanation of this piece than I can; those of the back show that there is some age to the piece although certainly not 100+ years old.
Dimensions: The frame is about 16 1/2″ high by 14″ wide.
FIRM Price: $45.00, plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $2.48 for a total of $47.48.
Unless we’re having a sale, which would be listed here, our prices are firm.
Condition: Very good. The map itself is clear and crisp, as it apparently has been under glass and out of the light for quite some time. The matting is in good shape. The frame does have a couple of dings, and the metal eyes for the hanging wire in back evidence some rust.
Location & Purchasing: This piece is located in our display case (#27) at Cabot Mill Antiques, Fort Andross, 14 Maine Street, Brunswick ME. You can purchase directly through them by visiting that beautiful shop, 7 days a week from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Alternatively, if you don’t mind waiting a bit:
Shipping & Delivery: Because this item is on display 20 miles from us, I may not even know for several days (usually over a weekend) whether or not an item is still available, but can bring it back to Lewiston for you the next time I’m in Brunswick updating our display. At that point, you’d be able to take advantage of local pick up at my office (by appointment only), or I can get it delivered to you per the next paragraph.
We can deliver within Lewiston-Auburn most days, or along the Lewiston-Lisbon-Topsham-Brunswick route (dates vary), for a $10.00 delivery fee, or Gray/Portland (along the 202 Route, or just off it) early Wednesday mornings for the same $10.00.
Shipping via USPS is $15.00.
