Clicking on any image will bring you to a larger version. To find more images and information on the history of cartography in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas, a great resource is the multi-volume History of Cartography, edited by J.B. Harley and David Woodward. You might also try Harvard's Digital Map Collection (works best if you know the title of the map or name of the cartographer), or take a trip to the first floor of Pusey (entrance through Lamont basement) to the Harvard Map Collection, where the librarians will be happy to help you find anything you might need.
