I just discovered a wonderful resource for historical maps. I've known
about the David Rumsey collection for some time, but what I'd never
spotted before is their map ranking tool. You can scroll around the
globe to specify a region for which you need a map. A slider lets you
set a band of time >from which you want the map. As you set these
parameters a list of matching maps is displayed. All the maps are available online.

I needed a detailed map of Poland between 1920-1935 and in under a
minute I had found one! http://rumsey.mapranksearch.com/
