Note

The paper map may be in the public domain, but once the map is republished online, the copyright is again with the date of publication to the website for the new publication method as there is no paper on the internet.


Purchasing Maps

If you wish to purchase an historical map, you may wish to try searching such venues as used book stores, or auction sites such as E-bay.
Bookfinder.com is an amalgamation of used and new book stores who allow their computerized store inventory database to be searched by bookfinder.com
The maps online at the Online Historical Map Digitization Project are mainly from digital submissions originating as scans, so these are not available for purchase in paper format.

If you have a map for sale, you may also wish to contact a used book store, or an auction site such as E-bay.

If you wish to know the price of your historical map, you may wish to compare it to maps listed on a used book store web site, or on E-bay.

Submitting Scans of Maps

If you have an historical map that you have scanned and wish to submit it to share with historians/genealogists, please contact the webmaster. This would be done on a volunteer basis, and submitted to a volunteer to be placed online. Credit to the submitters are acknowledged on the relevant map pages, and in the dedication pages as well. If you decide to send the paper version via postal mail and wish the material returned please send a SASE. Arrangements can be made for postal mail, if that is easier. It is preferred to receive a digital image from scanner or camera via the email or a file transfer program such as SendSpace or OneDrive for large files to place the maps online.
