Obviously, I can quote from prior papers, it's done all the time. But I can't think of a single published paper that "re-used" an image (maps or charts) from a previous paper.
Specifically, I want to contrast two recent emergence bar charts with two that have previously been published in the 1980s. It would be far more expressive to have all four charts in a row, than my two charts and just a reference to the past charts.
Alternately, you can re-draw the old figures with a statement something like this in the Captions "Figures X and X redrawn from Sciencedude et. al, 1995". For this to be reasonably legit, some level of re-working of the figure should happen (but I don't know what that threshold really is...)
