The Arthur J. Gutman Collection

The Gutman Collection constitutes the majority of the Maryland Room Map Collection. This collection consists of thirty two maps of Proprietary, Early Colonial and post-colonial Maryland. The collection was started by Arthur J. Gutman with their donation of Lord Baltimore's map of Maryland entitled Nova Terrae Mariae Tabula by John Ogilby dated 1671. This map was the oldest map that the library owned.

In the summer of 1999 Arthur J. Gutman donated three additional maps to the Maryland Room.  The map collection of the Maryland Room was starting to grow and a new focus on creating the most complete Maryland map collection on the Eastern Shore was undertaken as the library added additional books and maps to the overall Maryland Room Collection.

In November of 1999 Arthur J. Gutman donated their collection of Maryland Maps, twenty eight in all ranging in date from 1630 to 1855. The Talbot County Free Library's Maryland Room goal of creating the most complete collection of Maryland Maps was fulfilled by this donation.

The Arthur J. Gutman Collection is open for research by appointment with the Maryland Room Curator. A finding aid to the collection is provided in the table below. For information about a particular map please follow the appropriate link.
