A Warm Welcome From Team Goldiers.

Goldiers is owned and run by myself, Mr. Ivan Golden. I am British born and the great-grandson of Abner A. Wolf, the Detroit pioneer grocer. This is my latest venture following 21 years of retailing in the UK where I sold antiquarian books, prints and maps.

I started the original business on a market stall in Greenwich Market, South East London in 1991. The antiquarian books, prints and map selling grew over many years & was eventually internationally known with regular exhibitions on the east coast of the United States. In 1997 I started specializing in creating bespoke antiquarian leather bound book libraries. It has been my pleasure to have installed many libraries to clients worldwide until 2010.

This website has been developed to sell my personal collection of antique maps and prints. All the maps and prints were sourced from damaged beyond repair books and I personally listed each item.

I do have another specialist website called Picture Box Gold which just retails children’s books and educational material. It is very new and developing weekly.

Goldiers maps & prints are also sold on Ebay since 1999, Biblio and Abebooks. Additionally there are four more active social media outlets.
