Abstract
Maps have bibliographic characteristics which present unusual challenges to traditional cataloging practices. Rare maps carry these challenges even further by requiring bibliographic descriptions that identify and distinguish the item in hand from any other copies. While it has been acknowledged that rare maps should be bibliographically described in a different manner than modern maps, as rare printed texts are described in a differently than modern texts, the map cataloging community is uncertain about how this should be accomplished. This article attempts to identify some problems unique to the cataloging of rare maps. It also discusses the appropriateness of current map cataloging rules for rare maps and the importance of thorough cartobibliographic research.
