About Us


Manning's Books and Prints is the premier supplier of antique maps and prints in America and has one of the largest collections in the world. The owners, Bill Hall and Kathleen Manning began collecting and selling antique maps, prints and ephemera nearly forty years ago and their knowledge of map and print makers from the 1500's to the turn of the century is deep and insightful. Many institutions, museums, historical societies, universities, and many individual collectors and dealers acquire their maps from Manning's Books and Prints. 


For example, libraries and special collections, and government institutions are regular customers, in addition to the private collector with specific interests. The staff are experts in every area, whether it be nautical charts, or early maps of the world, and or natural history prints from Audubon, Gould or Denton. Manning's Books and Prints sells directly to the public and over the internet through several websites. Our parent site: PrintsOldandRare.com
