The Old Print Shop, Inc - founded in 1898 - is an art gallery specializing in American graphic arts, antiquarian maps, atlases, and artist books (livres d'artist).

The shop has an extensive inventory with very strong holdings of American historical prints, Currier & Ives, John James Audubon, American town views, and maps published before 1850. Our inventory of American fine art prints 1900-1950 is one of the largest in the United States . We represent a number of famous artists' estates and over seventy contemporary printmakers.

The gallery has been in the same location in mid-town Manhattan since 1925 and is one of the oldest family run art galleries in the United States . Since our inception in 1898, we have focused on the graphic arts - artists that use printmaking as an expressive medium. Prints, as they are called in the industry, have been collected by individuals and museums since the fifteenth-century when Albrecht Durer began making prints. Most museums have holdings of prints. In the United States the Library of Congress has the largest public collection. However, the Amon Carter Museum , The Art Institute of Chicago, Boston Athenaeum, Boston Public Library, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art , New-York Historical Society, and New York Public Library also have extensive collections that are available for viewing by the public.

In 2007 the shop purchased The Old Print Gallery in Washington , DC . The gallery is located in historic Georgetown just off M Street. The address is 1220 31st Street NW , Washington , DC 20007 , telephone 202-965-1818 . In the Washington gallery there is a fine selection of American art between 1750 and 1950 and a good selection of contemporary printmakers, as well as a fine selection of antique maps.

The shop encourages you to search our on-line inventory and/or to visit the gallery during your next visit to New York City or Washington , DC . The online inventory can be searched in several ways. The easiest way is by selecting a category pictured above or on the left navigation bar and then selecting a sub-category. You can also use our search feature located at the top of every page. Type in an artist/cartographer's name, subject, location, or a key word and the items in inventory will come up.
