Rumsey Donates Maps to Stanford
David Rumsey — he of the eponymous website — is donating his entire collection of 150,000 maps, plus digital copies, to Stanford University. Just not all at once: “While Rumsey’s agreement with Stanford calls for his entire collection to be donated, details of when certain maps will be given to the university remain to be worked out.” I mean, there are 150,000 of them; his website, which I presume will keep going in the meantime, only adds three to five thousand a year and only has 18,500 of the total on display. Only. Via MAPS-L.
