What are royalty free images
Royalty Free printable Stock Images of historical antique maps and prints
This section of antiqueprints.com contains a catalogue of royalty-free printable stock images of historical antique prints and maps. These are very detailed high quality and high resolution images suitable for printing and publishing.
Each map or print has a thumbnail image linked to a larger screen resolution image, plus the maps have a small portion of detail at the full resolution, they are available to purchase for download at $5 (US) each for maps and $4 or $5 for prints.
These could have many uses, such as book and magazine illustrations or covers, TV / film work (documentaries, historical productions etc.) and genealogical interests.
Being very high resolution images (400-800 dpi) they are also of sufficient quality for reproduction as decorative giclee prints, using a suitable printer. (I use a high end Epson and have had excellent results.) With suitable image processing (see my Information
page) they are capable of being printed at a larger size than the originals.
Please review the information notes to the left, the high resolutions digital images of historical maps are very large and may need manipulation / resizing depending on their intended use. The detailed full resolution samples look slightly blurred on the screen, as mentioned above they can be sharpened if necessary.
There are mainly maps and plans available at the moment, and some prints of China. More will be added when I find the time, along with more prints and views.
Note - Payment for these historical map downloads is via PayPal
