Cormelian is a family business based in beautiful West Cornwall. We specialise in quality original antique maps from the 17th – 19th century. Founded upon a lifelong passion and delight in cartography, Cormelian has been a commercial presence for some 15 years. The aim is to provide quality maps suitable for framing and display. A good map is not only a fine piece of art but can carry with it volumes of social and political history. They will delight not only the historian but enliven memories of childhood, special holidays and seminal moments in ones life.
We have an ever expanding stock totalling thousands of maps. These comprise a variety of county maps, every region of the world, town/city plans, battlefields, and polar regions. We always have examples by some of the most famous cartographers including John Cary, Robert Morden, Charles Smith, James Pigot, J&C Greenwood, Adrien Hubert Brué, Bowen, Moll, Blaeu ….. We are always searching and more maps will be regularly added to our stock.
For each original map sold we make a donation to Amnesty International of at least £1, increasing with the value of the map
