Stanford's Library Map Of London And Its Suburbs ... : E. Stanford

This is Edward Stanford's renowned 24 sheet map of London on a scale of 6" to 1 mile dissected, mounted on four sheets of linen, and folded as published into its original, now rather worn slip-case. Extending from Crouch End - Greenwich - Croydon - Hammersmith. The addition of the City & South London Railway (now part of the Northern Line), indicates a publishing date of circa 1891. Such was the utility and quality of this London series that it stayed in print (with some modernisation) from 1862 to 1901, nearly forty years. This example has a fascinating piece of ephemera attached - Edward Stanford's advertising prospectus describing the 1891 edition which includes recent reviews .... "You cannot do better than consult Mr. Stanford's "Library map of London and its Suburbs" ... It comprises a vast amount of detail of every kind, and cannot fail to give you the information you require".
