It depends on what you call the "very best" world map of course, but Maps.com or Map Resources would be a good place to start.

The International Map Trade Association is another resource. Their online directory includes a search for map publishers.

Map Link in the US has an online catalog with a geographic search. Unfortunately at the moment searching for "world" doesn't get you world maps. I've let them know so hopefully it will be fixed soon.

I know there are other distributors out there. Again the IMTA directory should give you some further leads.
