William R. Talbot, Owner

William R. Talbot has owned and operated his Santa Fe gallery since 1986. His formal education includes a degree in cartography from the Swiss School for Photogrammetric Operators, and he worked as a cartographer for several years before entering the art world in 1979 through a rising passion for collectible maps.


Before settling in Santa Fe, Bill helped develop historical map and print departments for galleries in Pennsylvania, Florida, and Texas. In 1990, on behalf of a client, Bill purchased a complete double elephant folio edition of John James Audubon’s The Birds of America. He continues to build private, museum, and library collections.
