The University of Texas, Austin’s Perry-Casteñeda’s Library contains a terrific online collection of maps, which you access here. Poke around—it’s a great way to waste time!
For our course purposes, I direct you to the following [set of] maps in particular:
- The German Zollervein (2 maps), pre- and post-1834
- The North German Federation and the German Empire, 1866-1871
- Europe 1871-1914
- Summary of Operations of World War I index (92 maps)
- Europe in 1924
Click on any of the maps to zoom in.
All of these maps, by the way, are taken from the 1923 edition of William Shepherd’s Historical Atlas. Again, dive into his collection to see what you can see.
