A Few Antique Maps & Views of Paris from Michael Jennings Antique Maps

Antique maps and Paris have been linked for me since 1976-7.. I lived in Paris for a year before starting a Masters at the LSE and in November of that year started working part time specialising in antique maps for Laurence Worms at Ash Rare Books in the actual ‘City of London’.

I have specialised in French maps over the years and here am listing a few interesting antique maps of Paris I have on my website at reasonable prices.

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100 sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks

      Doesnt cost anything to set up
      You can do alot for free with wordpress
      If you want lots of photos then after a while you might have to pay 5£ a month
      You can do everything yourself.. Just follow instructions.
