Why sell maps?
Because we love maps! And we love people who love maps, and people who love people who love maps!
Schein & Schein was opened by Jimmie and Marti Schein in 2003 in their North Beach neighborhood after living and working in San Francisco for many years prior. Their love of maps, history, travel and independence lead them to what is now an established and entertaining business that we invite you either visit in person or peruse online. We are always happy to help you find what you are looking for.
Schein & Schein is located in the heart of San Francisco's North Beach District, our gallery contains thousands of authentic Antique Maps and Prints. We cover the world stocking a wide range of material dating from the 14th to the 20th Century; we also specializes in San Francisco, California and wine country material from the 19th and 20th centuries. Please do not hesitate to contact us about items you are looking for, we have many more items that are not shown on this site. Maps and engraved prints make great gifts and wonderful decorative additions to any home or office. They are compelling objects that grab people's attention and transport them to a different time and place. Owning an antique map or print is much like owning a window into the past.
