Historic Maps Collection

This collection holds maps printed before 1919 (loose sheets, wall maps, cased maps), some atlases, directories, guides, and related reference works. The collection is especially rich in examples depicting North America, Western Europe, and the Middle East, with large holdings for London, Paris, and New York. Many of the maps have been digitized: high-resolution images are linked to the online catalog records. In addition, there is a small collection of globes and cartographic instruments and materials.
