Our Guarantee
All of our maps are guaranteed to be original, published on or near the date given, and in the condition described. If, for any reason, you are not satisfied with a map, you may send it back to us within seven days for a complete refund of the cost of the map, as long as it is in the same condition as when you received it. If you wish to return a map to us, please contact us first regarding shipping details.  

Payment Methods
All items are offered subject to prior sale. Orders can be placed by email, telephone, letter, or through a link to our secure order form on each individual map page. Please contact us for information on our mailing location.

Hemispheres Antique Maps accepts payment through a bank wire transfer, by personal check (in US$), or by PayPal.  We no longer accept credit cards.  Checks should be made payable to Hemispheres Antique Maps & Prints. We have a 'secure order form' for safe purchases over the internet.   If you wish to pay via a bank wire transfer, contact us for our bank details.  Please ensure that your bank transfers the full amount (many banks deduct various processing fees).

We use a secure certificate for on-line credit card transactions.   Please note that your internet browser may provide an error message that states " uses an invalid security certificate; *" or "(Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain)". We are using a secure server provided by Hostway, our website provider, at  It is still secure.


We ship maps via US Postal Service Express or Priority Mail, registered and/or certified, and will provide notification if we ship using another means.  We normally ship maps wrapped in tissue and placed in cardboard tubes.  On occasion, the maps are mailed in flat cardboard containers.  We do not charge extra for outbound packaging, insurance, or mailing within the United States for a total map order over $750.  For total map orders under $750, we charge $25.00 for packing and shipping costs.  The customer assumes full responsibility for the costs of return shipping and insurance.   

We ship throughout the world.  Please contact us regarding charges for shipping outside the United States.  For shipments outside of the United States, we are not responsible for any duties, taxes, or other charges imposed by customs officials of other countries. 

For security reasons, we require a signature with the delivery.  If we ship via FedEx and you have a signature waiver form on file with FedEx, we recommend that you have this waiver removed for this shipment.  If a map is delivered with a waiver of the signature, we do not accept responsibility for the shipment in case of loss or damage. 

Still Have Questions?
If you have any questions about how we use information that you send to us, please click on "Our Privacy Statement" to learn more.

Please feel free to contact us, if you require further information on the condition of any map. We can also send you a higher resolution photo of any map in our inventory. Because of download limitations over the internet for very high resolution images, the digital images displayed on our web site are not intended to completely present the cartographic details nor the beauty of the actual maps.

Our maps must be seen in person to be fully appreciated. Our return guarantee policy on all our maps ensures that you will be completely satisfied with any purchase you make with us.
