Jonathan Hipkiss writes to tell us about his massive collection of maps scanned from old books, many of which date from the 1800s, all of which are scanned at 600 dpi, which is quite high-resolution.
I have a growing collection of old books which each contain a large number of maps. I thought it might be interesting to scan them in and make them available for others to see.
The books are usually travel guides or books about a particular country, region etc. Although I’ve recently found some good books on religious history and geography which have some good maps in them. Basically, anything with a map in it!
Worth a look. He’s even got an RSS feed for new additions to the site.
