Rediscovered Map Exhibit at Brown

I came across a mention of “this exhibit of rediscovered maps”: on the excellent blog “The Map Room”:

Two-thirds of the maps are from the 1800s and early 1900s, with a major focus on the United States and Europe. The local collection for southern New England is also noteworthy. Some of the more exceptional maps are a Nazi tourism map, a map cited by Herman Melville in writing Moby Dick, and an anti-slavery map donated to the Library by the family of an abolitionist who graduated from Brown in 1831.

There is a “talk”: on April 5th, but the show runs though April 25th 2007 at Brown University’s “John Hay Library”:
