    Question Finding older maps?

    Heyas folks! So, I very much apologize if this is the wrong part of the forum to be asking this, and if it is do feel free to move it. Or simply delete, and let me know where to post.

    But! For a table top roleplaying game that I am going to be running in the near future (think month or two out), I will be doing an alternate history Earth. Essentially a more steampunk earth, with all the fun that can be had there. So, rather than come up with all new maps, I was thinking of finding old maps of the time period to use. Now, finding geological maps of the time can be rather easy, but what about political? With the nations, cities, etc in place? Or perhaps just an overview of all the nations and empires, so that I can make a few tweaks here and there.

    Any ideas where I might be able to find this? Thank you folks!

    I just searched on-line for "19th century map".
    Good luck.

    I'm late to this thread, but there is the Library of Congress map collection.
