Maps of the Campaign

Postby Waggoner » 04 Feb 2010 02:51

I am looking for some good maps of the campaign to illustrate an article with. Any suggestions? They should be out of copyright.

All the best,

Gary

Gary:

A Google search just turned up this full-page map from an 1873 number of The Illustrated London News, which is currently for sale on "iOffer" ....

Image

I hadn't run across this selling site before, but it appears to operate on the basis of listing an item at an "asking price" (in this case $32.19 .... US funds I presume) and you then have a "Buy It Now" option, or else can make an offer ....

Here is a link to the listing - http://www.ioffer.com/58839311
