1,676 new maps and images have been added to the David Rumsey Map Collection, bringing the online collection to 27,800 maps and images. Included in this addition are 666 images of Pocket Maps, a rare edition of Sanborn’s 1905 Atlas of San Francisco from the S.F. Public Library which shows the city just before the earthquake and fire of 1906 – the atlas pages show burns from the fire. Also the 1889 Cram Standard American Atlas and the 1901 Cram American Railway Atlas. 325 more images from the Karte des Deuchen Reiches are added and the large composite image is increased to 501 maps (the next update will finish it at 674 maps).
