• On antique & vintage maps and prints

Is this item a paper, wooden or metal object?

Virtually all items that we offer for sale are prints on paper. “Wood engraved print”, “wood engraving”, “woodcut”, “woodblock”, “steel engraving”, “copperplate” and similar terms refer to the material used for the engraved block or plate from which the print or map was created. Engraved prints and maps are made by engraving a flat metal (steel or copper) plate or wooden block which is then inked and applied to the page under pressure to produce the printed image.
