THE  MANTOVA MAP FAIR, this 14-15 May

Just a week after the Maastricht map fair of March 2020, Europe locked down. But now, we are back in business!

The Mantova map fair is the oldest antiquarian book fair in Italy, established 1975. Top map and atlas dealers from around the globe present their finest collections. Internet:

This will be our first (post)corona map fair:  CartaHistorica will be there! We all welcome you at this fair. Free admittance!

CartaHistorica’s input focusses on global cartography 1500 – 1700 by famed Flemish-Dutch cartographers. 

Meet for example Ortelius, Hondius, Mercator, Hogenberg, van Keulen and the Blaeu and Hondius families in person. They opened up the entire world for us. We will displays maps of all regions and continents, produced by these eminent Flemish and Dutch cartographers.

Of course, some colleagues from neighboring countries (such as Merian, Homann and others..) will also be highlighted.

Wishing you all happiness and health.

With warmest regards,

Stanislas De Peuter
