We specialize in rare, important and unusual images that reveal compelling stories about America's rich history.

He has developed a reputation for highly personalized client service and for offering rare and interesting material presented in a scholarly context. A specialist in the field, he is a regular public speaker and has published a number of articles in “The Portolan,” the journal of the Washington Map Society. He has been a guest curator of two map exhibitions at Harvard University, including "Toward a National Cartography: American Mapmaking, 1782-1800," which appeared in early 2011. Most recently in 2013-14 he was guest curator of "Made in Boston," an exhibition at the Norman B. Leventhal Map Center of maps produced in Colonial Boston. Michael Buehler's credentials include speaking engagements at the American Antiquarian Society, American Historical Print Collectors Society, Boston Map Society, Historic Deerfield, New York Map Society, New York Public Library and numerous local historical societies. He is a governing board member of both the Boston Map Society and American Historical Print Collectors Society.
