The Society has augmented its existing print-on-demand service with a new website, RGS Print Store, which allows visitors to browse and buy some of the most important images and maps in our Collections with ease.
The Society’s collection of images and maps is internationally renowned and records over 500 years of travel and geographical discovery. Its one and a half million combined items include photographs of many of the most famous names in the history of exploration and travel writing, including Dr David Livingstone, Isabella Bird and Captain Robert Falcon Scott, as well as historic images of a huge variety of people and places.
Now some of the most iconic and important images and maps from the Collection have been specially selected for the Society’s new print-on-demand service. Visitors to the RGS Print Store can browse and buy prints of photographs, artworks and maps dating from 1553, many of which are unique to the Society. Items can be purchased mounted or un-mounted, and in a variety of sizes, with prices starting at just £16 plus post and packaging.
Every purchase supports the ongoing work of the Society.
Captain Scott Collection – Images from both the Discovery Expedition (British National Antarctic Expedition), 1901-04, and the Terra Nova Expedition (British Antarctic Expedition), 1911-12.
Mount Everest Expeditions – Images from the successful 1953 ascent of Everest, as well as the 1921, 1922 and 1924 expeditions that preceded it.
