During only a few centuries, the borderlines of states, nomenclature and specificity of knoledge about described areas changed tens of times. Numerous maps and atlases available in Polish libraries belonging to the Digital Libraries Federation depict the world changing throughout the years. The oldest of them were created already in 17th century – one of such old prints can be seen in MCSU Digital Library – it is an cosmographic atlas from 1628. There are many pages missing, lots of them are only partly visible, but despite of that, conservation performed in 1995 let the library to release online the digital version of the print. There are craftsmanlike, ornated maps of different continents, conutries and areas inside.
