Maps in Books

Historical maps can be difficult to find, and may only exist in archival collections with no digital online access. In these cases, it is often helpful to search for maps that are published in secondary sources, especially books written by historians. When searching the library catalog, take note of the Format information, which will tell you if there are any maps or illustrations (abbreviated "ill.") included.
