] Bob, being a Historical Geographer, I'd give my eyeteeth to own such a thing!
You can keep your eyeteeth, and I'll send you a copy.
] 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.
I haven't looked lately, but I'll tell you what. If you send me a couple of bucks for postage, I'll print out all 20 large sections, and you can see for yourself. E-mail me at Whitwords@aol.com for my snail-mail address.
I also have an original 1815 copy of John Wallis's "New Travelling Map of England and Wales with part of Scotland, on which are Delineated The Direct and Principal Cross Roads, with the Market Towns and Villages, also The Course of the Great Rivers, to which is added the distance between one Market Town and another, and the Exact admeasurement prefixed to each County Town, and City, from the Metropolis." Don't you just love those long titles? I'll scan that one in someday soon.
] 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! ;-) )
I'm just learning how to do web pages right now for my Georgian/Regency/ Victorian jigsaw puzzle business, but I doubt that the map detail will show up very well at only 72 dpi.
