British Library Map Collection

"The British Library has one of the largest collections of maps, plans and topographical views in the world, with around 4.5 million collection items. The earliest of these, made over 2,000 years ago in the Roman Empire, can be found on a coin, while the latest appears as pixels on a computer screen. As well as geographic documents, maps can be works of art, propaganda pieces, expressions of pride or tools of indoctrination." From the British Library's Map Collection.
