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". This highly detailed map is on a very large scale of 9" to 1 Statute Mile.

This map has its own domain name:

Chosen because it is simple to remember, this is an easy way to access the map directly.

The map can still be reached via the MAPCO website. Similarly the MAPCO website can still be accessed through the Map Of London 1868 website. The map is still part of the MAPCO : Map And Plan Collection Online website.
