Heritage Charts and Charleston Library Society announce new fund-raising initiative

On Thursday the 7th March Heritage Charts was proud to be part of a very special evening held at the Library Society.  The event was a ‘thank-you’ to members of the Society who had already supported the conservation initiative.  As part of this special evening Heritage Charts joined forces with the Library Society to launch a new fund-raising initiative:  The sale of a series of special edition prints from the Heritage Charts collection which are representative of the very charts, maps and plans contained within the Charleston Library Society’s Atlantic Neptune volumes.

As of the 1st April 2012 Heritage Charts and the Charleston Library Society will be releasing a specially selected set of reproduction prints of charts, maps and plans from the Heritage Charts collection, representative of those contained within the Library’s collection of Atlantic Neptune volumes.  A new chart, map or plan will be released approximately every eight weeks thereafter.

The selected charts, maps and plans are all of Charleston and the surrounding area including Hilton Head, Beaufort, Port Royal and the coast of South Carolina.  All of them come complete with a printed history.

Each chart has been reduced to a uniform size (22″ high) so as to make a matching set and all of the prints have been produced using the Giclée print technique.

As part of the fund-raising initiative, any CLS members wishing to purchase any other charts, maps or plans, possibly one of the selected charts but at the size of the original or even at half-size, direct from the Heritage Charts web-site may do so at a 10% discount.  For every sale, the Library Society will receive 20% of the full sale price to put toward the conservation of their wonderful collection, including of course the Atlantic Neptune.

These beautiful maps, charts and plans make for magnificent personal and corporate gifts.  They look as wonderful on the wall of an office, reception room and boardroom as they do in the home.  Heritage Charts are able to print at any size, and can add a business or personal inscription of your choice.

Payment (to the Library Society)
