A few seconds with Google found one from later in the same year, with a few
small changes. I didn't find one site with *all* of them though. Not even
http://mercury.lcs.mit.edu/~jnc/tech/arpageo.html and

(Noel - the second one has faulty links, to /~jnc/tech/jpg/L73Sep.jpg
instead of /~jnc/tech/jpg/ARPANet/L73Sep.jpg etc.)

How often were the maps issued? Did they all come from BBN?
