A beautiful portfolio of maps of considerable historic and cartographic importance.
A reproduction of Thomas Milne's 1800 land use map of London and environs. Shows London and the surrounding area: North to Finchley Common, east to Greenwich, South to Streatham, west to Richmond. Milne's map was one of the first to make use of a precisely-surveyed triangulation system and one of the first land use maps to use symbols rather than crude and often unexplained illustrations. It is also interesting to note that as well detailing land use Milne used a variety of different shading techniques to show the urban expansion of London in the 18th century.
