   Richard and Penelope Betz welcome you to
Hemispheres Antique Maps & Prints, specializing in fine original antique maps from the 16th through 19th centuries.  Our inventory is strongest in antiquarian maps of Africa though we have fine antique maps of the world & other regions as well.

We are retiring from the antique map business at the end of December and will be closing our business and this website.  We have appreciated your business over the years, and we will miss seeing you at various map events & fairs, including the London & Paris Fairs as well as the Miami Map Fair.

We still have some maps and books remaining on our web site.  We hope you will take a look, especially at those related to maps of Europe and antiquarian and reference books (these can be found under "Books" on our "Index to All Maps & Books" webpage, or by clicking on the following link for "Books & Atlases").  If you find something of interest, please make us an offer.  All books and maps are offered subject to prior sale.  All packaging & shipping is at cost.

You may find detailed information, including book reviews and a Corrigenda and Addenda, of our new publication on antique maps, The Mapping of Africa: A Cartobibliography of Printed Maps of the African Continent to 1700, via the following link on our web site:  Hemispheres Antique Maps & Prints - The Mapping of Africa Book.
