Best way to deal with pages stuck together?

"John, You could probably pick up off eBay and 1964 soft cover atlas for under $25. Then you can personally scan in page 4 for the Continental overlays as well as pages 18, 42, 52, 62, 68, 78, 104, 124, 136 and 147 for the area overlays that would…"

"Interesting.  They only show a legend for the continental maps, eh?  Not all of them."

"Here's the picture for the map imagery, page 4 of the 1963 Atlas. It references "page" numbers. Use the page/plate table Tom provided from the 1963 Index to convert the page references to the "plates" in the Folio. Enjoy!"

"John, Here is the inside, front cover of the Folio Index that Mel mentions: Unfortunately, I do not have the Atlas of the World in which Mel states that the legend map is printed. Tom"

"John, It's a little convoluted, but please stay with me on this: There is no reference other than the "member completed/hand written" Index on the inside of the front board of the Folio. The 1963 publication I referenced and Tom…"

"John, I don't believe there is a "master" map for the Atlas series.  The society did market a Folio in which you could keep your set of maps.  The document Mel provided shows how they are ordered in the Folio.  In 1963…"
