I certainly appreciate Derek Hayes comments, pertaining to the issue of 'map as object' of admiration, and not simply an intellectual reference source. Those same issues apply to the notion of rare books.
As to the original question, I assume a coffee table could be fitted some some type of shaded museum mounting board, carefully sealed and with appropriate glass coverage, in such a way that the maps could be reasonably safely rotated. Those mounting boards can be obtained in a variety of shades, including whites (standard, antique, etc.), grey or black. It might even be conceivable to vary the backdrop board,depending on the map. Then you might have an option as to various borders surrounding the mounting board, allowing that the border material would not touch the map itself. Perhaps not the way a museum or major library would do it, but still enough to allow significant protection.
