This one seems oddly relevant.

Pretty fun, but the resolutions seem a little low, unless you just want to print 4x5's?

It's kind of odd, but on the categories bar it's best to click a sub-category, i.e. Animal - Octopodes as opposed to just Animal.

Sorry, OZ. Guess there just wasn't room for you in the two globe pictures. No offense.

These are going to come in very handy.

Oh yeah. I remember that about page. Great.
It's wonderful of the guy to add the caveat everywhere that he believes the images are pub domain and free to use, but if he doesn't tell us where they came from then we can't either judge the accuracy of his determination or come to our own conclusions. Pre-1923 is only a rough guide and a starting point for assessing rights.

Okay, I go to this website, randomly select page 422, see a map of Massachusetts (where I live), click on it, think it has a cool title so I come to post it here, and dubold has beat me to it.

Cool map, though.
