Rumsey's map collection continues to be amazing. Not sure what exactly classes a map as being pictorial, but he's got over 2,000 of them. In the first page of results are a wide variety, including Beck's first edition London Tube map.

Through a little Internet searching, I discovered New York City’s “PLUTO”…
