Description:

Based at the University of Alabama Libraries, the Warner Map Collection was a gift from the estate of Mildred Westervelt Warner, who passed away in 1974. Warner was an inveterate collector of antiquarian maps, and her collection ranges from 16th-century maps of the "New World" to an 1831 map of Alabama and Georgia. On the website, users can learn more about the Warner collection, and then peruse the fifteen different sections here. The sections include geographic regions ("The Caribbean") and cartographers, such as "Maps by Blaeu". There are only two maps in the collection by Blaeu, but they are both worth a look, as they are both interesting renderings of America in the 17th century. It's worth nothing that all of the maps also have high-resolution versions available, which makes it quite easy to examine each item in scrupulous detail.
