  1. Late 19th and early 20th century editions of Barrington Atlas?

  2. The closest such resource would be the 1872-4 “Atlas of Ancient Geography Biblical and Classical” edited by William Smith and featuring classical maps largely compiled by Carl Mueller. There were other attempts at such atlases in the 1890′s and 1910′s, but neither saw the light of day.
