Introduction

Jenny Wagstaff's speciality is in the early decorative and lavishly embellished maps of the 16th - 18th Centuries. This includes maps of the whole World, the Continents and individual countries by the greatest map makers of that time.

Popular maps include early maps of North America showing California as an island, mythical islands on early maps of Europe and maps that illustrate the development of the World as it unfolded through the voyages of MAGELLAN and other early explorers, leading up to CAPTAIN COOK.

Emphasis is placed on the personal association between Jenny and her clients. Having established the business more than 30 years ago, her vast experience creates the opportunity for Jenny to advise on putting together and adding to collections of antique maps of the highest quality.

An antique can also make an ideal corporate or personal gift. Jenny has provided business gifts for many multi-national companies.
