MAPCO News - Offline Jan-Feb 2014


Access Problems

Access to the MAPCO website has been sparodic during January and Februray 2014, due to bandwidth issues resulting from the increased visitor traffic load over the past year. MAPCO has essentially become a victim of its own success.

This problem has recently been resolved, and it is not anticipated that there will be further access problems for the site.

MAPCO wishes to thank all visitors and supporters for your continuing interest in the site. It is greatly appreciated! Thank you.


Relocation

In other news, during 2013 MAPCO relocated to much larger premises. At present all items are still in storage boxes, and the office is in a state of chaos. We currently have no scanning setup, so there will be no new maps scanned for display in the immediate future. We are hoping to have this resolved soon, and have everything in operation again within the next few months.

In taking stock of our current situation we have discovered quite a backlog of scanned items that have never made it to the top of the list for display. We will try to trawl through the scanning archives to find and display a few treasures that have not previously seen the light of day, and example of which is shown to to the left. Enjoy!

Sara Douglass


Sara Douglass died this morning at around 5am.

Sara loved old maps, especially maps of London. Many key scenes in her books occurred in London, and we spent hours researching locations to ensure historical accuracy in her writing. St Dunstan's-in-the-East, and the crypt of St Thomas' under London Bridge, are two examples. Fans will know.

Both self confessed map nerds, we developed our map separate websites together back in early 2006. We learnt a lot from each other as we constructed the sites, and had a lot of fun together.

Sara Douglass' Old London Maps


Sara's web time was eventually taken over by her passion for her house and garden, which she loved to share on her Nonsuch Kitchen Gardens website. This is the forum on which she openly spoke of her battle with cancer, and through which people from all over the world offered her friendship and support.

Sara will be deeply missed.

Stanfordís Library Map Of London 1872



Stanfordís Library Map Of London And Its Suburbs 1872 is now online @ london1872.com

Title:
Stanfordís Library Map Of London And Its Suburbs
Stanfordís Library Map Of London And Its Suburbs 1872
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.
Total Size:
1730mm Wide x 1980mm High (68" Wide x 78" High)

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.

This is the third of MAPCO's copies of Stanford's Library Map of London to be displayed. MAPCO's edition of this map from 1897 will be on display in 2011.

Chart Of The World, On Mercator's Projection, Illustrative Of The Impolicy Of Slavery c1824


~ Impolicy Of Slavery Map c1824 ~

Chart Of The World, On Mercator's Projection, Illustrative Of The Impolicy Of Slavery c1824 is now on display.

Hand coloured engraved paper map of the World, sold by Joseph Cross for the price of 3d. The map shows the extent 30į north and south of the Equator in which sugar is grown. Australia is still shown as New Holland. An unusual little map that would have been the talking point of late-Georgian London.

The primary argument of the author made here against the slave trade is based on the economic burden to the British population in paying duties to support the production of "Slave grown Sugar". This argument was commonly used at the time, in conjunction with contempt for the degrading treatment of slaves kept as property by white masters, to argue the case for the abolition of slavery.

~ Map Of London 1817 ~

Darton's New Plan Of The Cities Of London & Westminster, & Borough Of Southwark, 1817 is now on display.

The full title of the map is 'An Entire New Plan Of The Cities Of London & Westminster, & Borough Of Southwark; The East & West India Docks, Regent's Park, New Bridges, &c. &c. With The Whole Of The New Improvements Of The Present Time.'

This map of London has been extended east by an extra sheet 17cm (6¾") wide, extending the map from Stepney as far east as Greenwich Marsh. This is a highly decorative map, although it has some offsetting (transfer of the image from one part of the map to the other due to folding).

The map illustrates proposals for the "Intended Markets" on the eastern side of Regent's Park (which became the Cumberland & Clarence Markets), the Intended Docks east of London Docks, and many other proposed improvements. It also has nice detail of Kensington Gardens.

Merry Christmas from MAPCO!

Hello MAPCO Users.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your support throughout 2010, and to wish you all the very best for a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I look forward to providing you with more high quality online maps in 2011.

Below is a summary of new maps and updates from 2010. Do take a look at what has been achieved throughout the year. It has been a very London-centric year, with 29 new London maps displayed, and a further 3 London maps already on display being completely revised and improved.

The most significant additions to the site this year, and the ones that I am particularly proud of, are the 1864 and 1878 editions of Stanford's Library Map of London and its Suburbs:

Stanfordís Library Map Of London And Its Suburbs 1864 @ london1864.com

Stanfordís Geological Library Map Of London And Its Suburbs 1878 @ london1878.com

Do take a look at these, and at all of the other wonderful 2010 additions to the site.

If I had to pick just one particular favourite image, it would be the enlarged image of the Crystal Palace from Stanford's 1864 London Library map:

http://london1864.com/stanford77b.htm

It is stunning!

Enjoy this summary. There are better things to come in 2011!

Best wishes,

David.

Preview of Bacon's Large Scale Ordnance Survey Of London And Suburbs c1880

Bacon's Large Scale Ordnance Survey Of London And Suburbs c1880

~ New Scanner for MAPCO ~

MAPCO has just taken delivery of a brand new large scanner. This was purchased specifically to enable scanning of Bacon's Large Scale Ordnance Survey Of London And Suburbs c1880.

The scanner was quickly installed onto the computer, and a page of the Bacon Atlas placed onto the scanner bed. The page was scanned without reading any instructions. Take a look at the result and judge for yourself.

I have had to optimize the image for the web to reduce the file size, but I'm happy with the result, and anticipate that images will eventually look much better with practice.

I look forward to being able to display this map in 2011.

London Fire.
Plan Of Cornhill Fire
1748


Plan Of The Fire In Exchange Alley, Cornhill, 1748

~ Great Fires Of London 1666, 1748, & 1765 ~

A third London fire map has just been displayed. It is:

A New & Correct Plan Of All The Houses Destroyed And Damaged By The Fire Which Began In Exchange-Alley, Cornhill, On Friday, March 25th, 1748.

I have also revised and improved the 1765 fire map of Bishopsgate, and linked the two :

A Plan Of The Great Fire In Bishopsgate Street Leadenhall Street & Cornhill &c. On Thursday Novr 7th 1765.

Both of these maps include extensive notes taken from the London Magazine and Gentleman's Magazine of the time, including the names of occupants in the area, and notes on some of those killed during the fires.

The 1748 fire plan article recalls the Great Fire of London of 1666, and links back to this map:

A Plan of the City and Liberties of London, Shewing the Extent of the Dreadful Conflagration in the Year 1666.

There is a compelling link between these three London fire maps. It is fascinating to contemplate just how close London may have come to repeated total catastrophe in 1748 and 1765.

I hope that you find these items of great historical, and hopefully for some, genealogical, interest.

Sara Douglass died this morning at around 5am.

Sara loved old maps, especially maps of London. Many key scenes in her books occurred in London, and we spent hours researching locations to ensure historical accuracy in her writing. St Dunstan's-in-the-East, and the crypt of St Thomas' under London Bridge, are two examples. Fans will know.

Both self confessed map nerds, we developed our map separate websites together back in early 2006. We learnt a lot from each other as we constructed the sites, and had a lot of fun together.

Sara Douglass' Old London Maps

Sara's web time was eventually taken over by her passion for her house and garden, which she loved to share on her Nonsuch Kitchen Gardens website. This is the forum on which she openly spoke of her battle with cancer, and through which people from all over the world offered her friendship and support.

Sara will be deeply missed.
