Special announcement of 15 June 2005: Dear Map Scholars, I highly reccomend that you purchase the 1:63,000 scale Exploration Fund Map of Palestine made in 1878 for your studies (26 sheets). It is very rare, and a recent reprint (with a reduction in original map size) sells for $4000.00. But, it is now available on CD (and not the hard-to-read recently reduced size, but full-sized) for only $35 plus postage. Click here for the details.
