Shop Still Closed, Sorry.
Whilst many stores around the UK are opening on Monday, June 15th, we are not. This is not a decision we have taken lightly. We have done this for many reasons from the safety of our staff, the fact that three of us have children who are not all back to school and childcare, the fact that we do not think we can operate without the University fully open and with social distancing measures in place in a narrow medieval building. We hope to be open in July but in a limited way.
We miss our customers and our shop.
Although the physical shop space is closed, we will be doing our upmost to stay positive and maintain our online presence, coming up with new and inventive ways to fulfil your print and map desires during your period of social distancing and isolation. So do check in with us on our social media feeds.
As always over 9500 of our prints and maps are available to browse and purchase on our website and if we can help you find anything in particular please do not hesitate to get in touch via the contact tab above.
We will try our hardest to fulfil any orders as quickly as possible during these strange times.
Stay safe folks!
We are currently offering free UK shipping* on all orders for as long as DHL courier system is functioning as normal. (*excluding framed stock)

Sanders of Oxford is one of the largest print sellers in Britain, and features a varied and wide-ranging stock of more than 30,000 items. Our shop has long been a landmark on the High Street, continuing a tradition established in the middle of the 19th century of trading in antique prints, antique maps and drawings.
We are located opposite Brasenose College in a listed 16th Century building whose first recorded use of this site was as a tavern called the Salutation Inn. There has been an antiquarian book, print, and map shop operating on the site since 1834.
Sanders' range of prints and maps varies from British Topography to Mythological and we carry Mezzotint Portraits, Topographical, Decorative, Sporting, Caricatures, Maritime, Military, Natural History, Literary and Fine Art prints. Our range of Oxford prints is excellent. We offer maps of every part of the world, printed between the 17th and 19th centuries. We also have a good selection of 18th, 19th and early 20th century Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock prints (Japanese prints) and book illustrations.
