Title
Maps of Central America
Library locations
Lionel Pincus and Princess Firyal Map Division
Description
This collection of maps of Central America includes maps of regions, countries, and cities, showing basic topographical features and/or, in some cases, topical themes. Maps date from the 17th century through the present day. Sectional maps from contiguous-area map series, plates from atlases, bird's-eye views; and guides, indexes, and other texts that accompany maps or are part of atlases may also be found here. Maps depicting Central America may also be found in other collections, including the Maps of North America collection, the Lawrence H. Slaughter Collection, and the John H. Levine Collection, as part of maps of North America, Mexico, the Caribbean Area, and the West Indies. The maps in the Maps of Central America collection have varying provenance. Some come from the Astor and Lenox collections, which formed the foundation of NYPL's holdings; others were purchased by the Library or received as gifts from diverse sources over the years.
