Subject: Re: What about Globes?!

In response I too hope that map trade covers both new and old map, atlases,
globes etc as detailed by George Glazer. I am particularly interested in
prices achieved as well as prices asked . I am not in the business of
selling maps but I am a valuer of such materials. It is a stipulation of
the Government body I prepare valuations for that recent prices must be
cited. I hope very much that this list will prove to be an authoritative
source that I can quote in my valuations. There are not many sources apart
from the Antique Map Price Record and Handbook and of course auction and
booksellers catalogues.>

Perhaps this is self-evident, but MapTrade should, in my opinion, be about
>maps AND GLOBES.  Plus, armillary spheres, orreries, tellurians.  And I gather
