Maps and atlases

The image bank of the maps and atlases collection contains images and descriptions of important and notable cartographical documents in the possession of the Amsterdam University Library and the Library and Map Collection of the Koninklijk Nederlands Aardrijkskundig Genootschap (KNAG, the Royal Dutch Geographical Society), which has been housed at the university since 1880. Although the collection has many modern maps, with a few exceptions, only selected old maps have been included, which for the most part date from before 1900.
