More old and strange maps

I recently told you about Rumsey's map collection, which you could see About Google Maps. Now Leszek Pawlowicz tells us about a new site dedicated to storing and selling historical map services, founded by Kevin James Brown in 1999.

Is Geographicus, which sells map services in printed formats, framed etc. They have an affiliate system and pay 10% commission per sale made from a referred site. You have to take a look as they have some rare map examples on the web.

Here is an example of how the Japanese saw us 130 years ago. It's a map of the Western Hemisphere from 1879.
