Social Half Hour at 5:30pm, presentation begins at 6 pm
George Ritzlin, a founding member of the Chicago Map Society, will return with the second half of his two-part presentation on map collecting. In his first presentation, George explained how to determine the authenticity of an antique map and explored the process of paper production, printing, coloring and atlas assembly. In part two, George will help members build on their map-collecting expertise by providing insights on focusing collecting interests, sharing details on how the map market works (and where to buy maps), and best practices for storage, organization and cataloging a collection.
Our meetings are open to the public, but to help defray expenses, non-members are asked for a small donation at the door.
