Catalog of Hungarian Books & Maps
(atlases, maps, history, dictionaries, etc)
The following is a select collection of modern books and maps available in Hungary in the Hungarian language and some in the English language. This "catalog" was created because some people don't have any access to books in the Hungarian language, but still want to buy a present for their relatives, or for their own genealogical interests.

International bank checks must have U.S. bank routing numbers on them or they are not accepted. For instance, these numbers look like "29-7003/2213" (this is the bank number for Charter One Bank) or "11-35/1210" (this one is for Bank of America), etc. Even banks like Chase Manhatten in New York don't always have these bank routing numbers, when associated with foreign banks. The costs to collect funds from such international checks is no less than $25 and takes at least 3 months. For this reason they are not accepted. Your best option would be to pay by charge card.
This out of print series of Hungarian county maps by Cartographia is at a scale of 1:150,000. They are the most detailed maps available for counties of Hungary, showing even the tiniest of places. (Price includes shipping) (also see the newer county map series listed below)
Hungarian County Maps
This series of Hungarian county maps is at a scale of 1:200,000. Not as detailed as the maps above, but they are still supurb references and, of course, they show every village. In several ways, they are far better than the old Cartographia maps above because they have many of the village coats-of-arms in beautiful color, they contain a short county history in several languages (including English), and they even give population totals of every village and city within the county. If you already have one of the county maps like the above from Cartographia, you won't be disappointed in adding one of this new series to your collection. If I don't have the map in stock it will be sent to you directly from Hungary. All county maps cost $20, unless otherwise indicated. If not in stock here in California, please add shipping.
Hungarian City & Village Maps ($10.00 to $20.00 each)
These maps are too numerous to list, so if you want a map just tell me which one and I will see if it is available and quote you a price. (plus shipping)
