I found an excellent cartography website called Decorative Maps (http://decorative-maps.com/). It has awesome info on ornaments & embellishment (http://decorative-maps.com/map-ornament-and-embellishment.html), compass rose designs & rhumb lines (http://decorative-maps.com/compass-rose-designs.html), map design & layout (http://www.decorative-maps.com/map-design.html), and my personal favorite: map symbols (http://www.decorative-maps.com/map-symbols.html).

As an example, checkout an image about relative sized mountain symbols from the map symbols page:

Dear lord I'd go nuts putting in all of those hills and mtns and shading them all. Also, where would I put my trees? Excellent inspiration, though. Nice find. The Gutierrez map on one of the pages is probably my favorite of all time.

Does anyone know where can I find that mountain brush?

I think you will have to make your own. If you google 'Erwin Raisz' you should find more examples around.
