Description
This collection of maps of the Arctic regions includes primarily maps centered on the North Pole, showing basic topographical features of surrounding lands, and may include maps of explorers’ routes, political claims, or other topical themes. Maps date from the 17th century through the present day. Sectional maps from contiguous-area map series, plates from atlases, and guides, indexes, and other texts that accompany maps or are part of atlases may also be found here. Maps depicting Arctic regions may also be found in other collections, including the Lawrence H. Slaughter Collection, and the Atlases, Gazetteers, Guidebooks, and Other Books collection. The maps in the Maps of the Arctic Regions 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.
