Antique Old World Maps For Office Decor

Does anyone know where I can find antique map prints of the maps below. I have seen several reprints on websites but I dont know if there is a place where I can purchase the actual antiques. I feel they would be the perfect decor for my office. If any one can help it would be greatly appreciated.

If he is selling he doesn't make it easy to find out where...
No link and he's looking to buy real antiques....not prints.

Im looking for old prints from reputable dealers. I am located in NY but frequent Boston. I discovered the hard way that the internet is not the place to buy collectibles.

He said he wanted the originals, not reporductions, well good luck! The maps shown are collectors items. Have you seen the appraised value of these on the "Antiques Road Show"?

The maps shown were made before much was known about the upper half of North America and the Aluetian Chain. The artic region of Canada is only hinted; Missing are Anartica, Austraila, and Hawaii. South America and Africa are distorted. An original in good condition for this period is worth thousnads of dollars.
