►►► February 2018.   BRITISH MAPMAKERS, dealers and experts from the UK attend Miami’s International Map Fair each year. The British were the foremost explorers in the world with the greatest navy ever, so this necessitated all their early map-making.  The fair takes place in downtown Miami at the Historical Museum. Dealers from many countries attend, along with about 2000 visitors. The USA’s preeminent Map Fair presented by History Miami returns for a weekend of browsing and buying antique maps, with the public encouraged to bring in an old exhibition map of their own for opinions provided by onsite dealers. You can also buy authentic maps and reprints, browse and hear lectures.   INFO/Tickets see website www.historymiami.org.    Questions call  [305] 375-1618 or email mapfair@historymiami.org.
