] This is an original folding pocket map from 1810 that I picked up several years ago at an antiques mall in Vermont. I scanned in all the sections, blew them up in Photoshop, and printed it out so that it's about 30" x 60"--and hanging on my office wall.
Bob, being a Historical Geographer, I'd give my eyeteeth to own such a thing!
Two thoughts come to mind.
Firstly, when you have the time, I'd love to know what this plan says about the London streets mentioned in JA's novels. For instance, what does it tell you about St Clement's Parish? Does Gracechurch Street actually have Warehouses on it, or within sight if it? Is Hatchard's marked? I could go on for hours with questions like these.
Secondly, if it's scanned in, could you not put it up on a web-page for us all to see? (No, I'm not actually that serious...it's a big thing to ask of anyone! ;-) )
Thank you very much for the information so far. I'm thoroughly enjoying it!
