I also am interested in the changes as well as a set of the 1908 maps. The best for them would be full size on sturdy, laminated paper, obviously clearly printed in non fading ink as discussed below.
If you think this is possible, you could PM me with an estimated cost just in case I don't win the lottery.
TR, it would be interesting to see the 3rd PR book's map.
