Books and Prints is the premier supplier of antique maps and
prints in America and has one of the largest collections in the world.
The owners, Bill Hall and Kathleen Manning began collecting and selling
antique maps, prints and ephemera nearly forty years ago and their
knowledge of map and print makers from the 1500s to the turn of the
century is deep and insightful. Many institutions, museums, historical
societies, universities, and many individual collectors and dealers
acquire their maps from Manning's Books and Prints. For example,
libraries and special collections, and government institutions are
regular customers, in addition to the private collector with specific
interests. The staff are experts in every area, whether it be nautical
charts, or early maps of the world, and or natural history prints from
Audubon, Gould or Denton. Manning's Books and Prints sells directly to
the public and over the internet through several websites.
