Dear Beryl,

Thank you for the additional images and your patience. The presented maps appear to be two engravings on paper with the measurements of 47 x 59 cm. The two maps depict the Iberian peninsular and Valencia region and were made by Abraham ORTELIUS (1527-1598). These maps were printed in numerous editions and these maps appear to be made in the year 1584.
This piece is in medium condition and there are minor damages visible.
An estimation would be between 100 to 200 USD each.
This estimation is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.

With kind regards,

Dear Beryl,

You are very welcome. Sadly historic maps are not that requested as they were 20 or 30 years ago. Please contact us for further questions and feel free to upload more items.

With kind regards,
