Announcement   Asian Antique Maps is a boutique antique map shop focusing on rare and beautiful maps of Asia from the early 16th century to the mid 1800's. Antique maps look great when framed and hung on the wall and make unique gifts for special occasions.

Is there anything more beautiful than an original antique map? These maps were hand-crafted and hand coloured with the most meticulous care and the workmanship of these master-craftsmen shows in the detail.

The maps you see here are also not just "maps" but are really historical documents - that tell a story. And sometimes the story "inside' the map is quite amazing!

By the way - I do not sell any copies or reproductions - all the maps here are guaranteed 100% original antiques. All these maps were part of my personal collection and were carefully selected.

IF you have any questions at all about antique maps, even if you don't want to buy one, please send me an email and I'll try to help answer your question.

About

Antique maps of Asia - Hidden Treasures.

Asian antique maps is a boutique antique map shop focusing on rare and beautiful maps of China & Asia from the early 17th century to the mid 1800's.

I have been collecting antique maps for over 15 years and with well over 1000 maps, I've decided to sell off part of my collection now that Ive returned home to Australia.

I studied Asian studies at University and did a post grad marketing degree, worked in the corporate field for many years. While working I developed a strong passion for antique maps of Asia and China. After many years of collecting antique maps, I've decided to sell off a portion of my collection. I will be doing it bit by bit as I have a huge number of maps.

I have given lectures at various clubs & associations on the history of maps in the Asian region including:

- At the Royal Asiatic Society in Shanghai & Beijing chapters.
- Shanghai Rotary Club
- Shanghai Historical Society

Most of this you can find by googling me & I also have a full profile of myself at LinkedIn should you wish to find out more about my map collecting passion.

I do not sell any copies or reproductions - all the maps here are guaranteed 100% original antiques.

I also have a large collection of old original and scarce Shanghai & Peking maps from early 1900's.

Please take time to browse through the shop at the different sections. I also have a BARGAIN BASKET of less expensive antique maps to suit any budget!

If you wish to contact me with any requests or questions about antique maps, I'd be happy to answer them.

Thanks for visiting my site.

Customers residing in Australia have the option of contacting us to arrange for direct bank transfers.
Shipping
It's Important to me that my customers receive their orders safely and promptly. Below I have listed the key points of my shipping policy. I know it's long to read, but please take your time as it has IMPORTANT INFORMATION for how I ship your orders.

Firstly, the GOOD NEWS. Antique maps are usually not too big and very lightweight, so the shipping cost is never going to astronomical. I have been a buyer of maps myself so I know how an antique map should & shouldn't be packed. I will pack your map very carefully. If its copper engraved, I will wrap it iin acid free paper specially made for antique maps.

Now for the LESS GOOD news.
The costs of shipping ANYTHING from Australia are unfortunately very high. I DO NOT charge the actual, full price for shipping overseas but absorb most of the cost. I DO however provide TRACK AND TRACE, INSURANCE AND SIGNATURE on delivery for every shipment. This protects you and also me.

If you are willing to be flexible on your shipping options, then please do discuss with me on how we can work together to get your shipping costs as reasonable as possible for the services provided.

WHEN WILL I GET MY ORDER?
In most cases, orders will be shipped 1-3 days (or up to 4 days during busy periods) after the date of receipt of the order.

If your order is time-sensitive, please say so when ordering, so that we can prioritize your order -- or inform you in case there will be difficulty getting the order to you on time.

Delivery times within Australia are typically one week. For everywhere else, 1 or 2 weeks. Actual delivery times are affected by factors beyond our control, including inefficiency of the postal service, postal strikes, natural calamities, security measures implemented by the government, Customs, etc.

WHAT HAPPENS IF MY ORDER IS LOST IN THE MAIL?
I insure all items at the sales price at no extra cost to you, so insurance will be included in the shipping cost.

The only exception to this is that no refunds will be made if the address you have provided was incorrect.

IS MY ORDER MAILED WITH TRACKING?
Yes, all items are sent with tracking and signature on delivery.

CUSTOMS TAXES AND DUTIES
Customers are responsible for any taxes or duties that may be charged on their end.
Refunds and Exchanges
REFUNDS

Asian antique maps wants you to be happy with your purchase, and makes every effort to ensure a great shopping experience. However, there may be times when, despite our best efforts, our customers have a complaint about one aspect or another of their order.

In this regard, our refund policy is clear: if it's our fault that you're not happy with your order, we will happily refund you in full. Specifically, "our fault" means:

A) We made a mistake in mailing the order to you -- that is, we did not ship the item to the address reflected in your Etsy account or, if you specified it in writing prior to the shipping date, the address you asked us to deliver.

B) We sent you the incorrect item.

Antique maps by their nature are not perfect. I make an effort to accurately describe each map, however there may be minor flaws in a map that I do not describe. Please therefore choose any maps carefully based on the photos I have provided.

Additional photos can be provided by request.
Additional policies and FAQs
I provide a certificate of authenticity for all copper engraved maps. As a member of the International Map Collectors Society I am bound by the ethics of the society to not sell maps which are not authentic.
