Germany 1786 16-Part Antique Postal Map Thurn Tax 40376

Title : Nouvelle Carte Geographique des Postes D'Allemagne Author : Homann Edition : 0.00 Condition : Good Publisher : Homann Heirs Location : Nuremburg Binding : none Pages : 17 Description:

Map of German postal routes, done for Herrn Carl Anselm, Furst von Thurn und Taxis, and holder of the postal monopoly for greater Europe. Rare map in 16 parts showing the routes of the post coaches and stop-offs for all of greater Germany. Nicely engraved, excellent impression. Also includes a 17th page, an 'overview' map of the territory covered. Some faults, with a few sheets weak or separating along fold, page nine with hole just above bottom margin, sheet ten trimmed at the top, and the overview sheet with a thin area and hole to a blank portion of the map (no loss). As you can see from the detailed scans, overall condition is good, and a superb map for those interested in the history of the post, as well as the cartography of the era. Each sheet image is about 24x20cm. Each sheet (with margins)is 26.5x22cm, giving an assembled map size of ca 106x88cm. Would be quite striking matted and framed. Absolutely guaranteed original copperplate antique map ca220 years old.

Payment: According to eBay rules, we accept PayPal for payment. 6.7% sales tax will be added for all Colorado deliveries. Shipping: PLEASE NOTE: We lose money on shipping -- look at the postage when you get the package, factor in the free private insurance (instead of charging you the high postal service ins rates), and see how much you paid. Please keep this in mind when giving stars for shipping costs. International Shipping :

For shipment out of the USA, items in value over $100 are shipped registered insured, which is why the high shipping fee. Even so, we lose money on shipping -- look at the postage when you get the package, factor in the free private insurance (instead of charging you the high postal service ins rates), and see how much you paid. Please keep this in mind when giving stars for shipping costs.

International Buyers – Please Note :

Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying. We cannot mark items as 'gift' We are required to put the actual value of the items won on each package. The delays and/or duties caused by this are completely out of our control and sp of responsibility.

Shipping Times: Now that eBay asks bidders to rate sellers' shipping-time, we feel compelled to point out that this judgement is supposed to be based on the time it takes us to ship the item -- not how long it takes to receive it. Please look at the postmark when the package arrives. We generally ship within two days of cleared payment, and often within 24 hours. However, most of our business is in Europe -- and we can do nothing if a foreign customs agency holds a package for a month or if the USPS takes three weeks to get a package out of the country (yes, both of these things have happened more than once). We are professional, full-time dealers in business for many years, and we treat your lots with care and consideration in a timely manner. Also, the shipping fees we charge are less than our actual costs! We're just trying to recover part of the shipping fees and insurance, so please rate us accordingly.
