Cabinet of Discoveries is a family-run antique map and print business based in Canberra, Australia.
We have been in business since 1997 but started collecting on 1972 when Ron was a diplomat and Pamela traveled the world with him. We buy and sell maps and prints all over the world. Some are worth several thousand dollars, some less than $50; but all are chosen with care for their authenticity, condition and appeal to our taste. Our customers include collectors, investors and private individuals, but our principal clients are public institutions, including the following:
National Library of Australia National Gallery of Australia National Library of New Zealand (Alexander Turnbull Library) Australian National Maritime Museum
State Library of Tasmania Queensland State Library State Library of South Australia State Library of Western Australia State Library of Victoria
Northern Territory Library Library of the Riverina (Wagga Wagga) ACT Heritage Collection Baillieu Library, University of Melbourne City of Auckland Library
Museum of Australian Democracy National Portrait Gallery Ballarat Gold Museum Art Gallery of Ballarat
Queensland Art Gallery Queen Victoria Museum and art Gallery, Launceston Bendigo Art Gallery Canberra Museum and Gallery
We exhibit regularly at the Canberra Antiques Fair.
