The Map

Title: Stanfordís Map Of London And Its Suburbs
Slipcase Title: Map Of London. Stanford.
Mapmaker: Edward Stanford.
Publisher: Edward Stanford, 6 & 7 Charing Cross, S.W.
Scale: 6 Inches to 1 Eng. Statute Mile; or, 1 Inch to 880 Feet; or, as 1:10560 on the Ground.
Date of Map: 1872
Size: On 4 sheets, each 865mm Wide x 990mm High (34" Wide x 39" High)
Total Size: 1730mm Wide x 1980mm High (68" Wide x 78" High)
Extent: Crouch End - Greenwich - Anerley - Hammersmith
Description:

Hand-coloured map, dissected and mounted on linen. 80 sections each measuring 170mm Wide x 245mm High (6¾" x 9½").

The closest edition recorded in Hyde is No. 91 (8). Ralph Hyde dates an edition as c1871, showing Mansion House Station and new St. Thomas's Hospital on Albert Embankment.

The edition displayed here appears to an accumulation of sheets from various dates. The South-East and South West sheets appear to pre-date 1871, with the northern sheets including updates to mid-1872. When compared with the 1864 edition of this map, there is little expansion growth of the Metropolis recorded on the 1872 edition.
