|~ Map Of London 1868, By Edward Weller, F.R.G.S. ~|
This is one of the largest maps to be displayed on the MAPCO website. The detail is amazing. Cassell, Petter & Galpin, who had previously published the map in 1863, declared that their “large map of London, as well as being the largest, is universally admitted to be the best map of London ever produced”.
