The British Library example of this work is identified as being edited by William Stanford and is dated by them to 1912. Hodson records a similar work with the same Hertfordshire map dated to 1891. This example bears no mention of Stanford and is dated in pencil to circa 1928 on internal evidence. The atlas consists of 7 double page maps of the home counties, 16 ‘Special Maps of London’, Index map and 34 sectional maps of London in large scale. The ‘Special Maps’ are fascinating and hold a wealth of information. Some of these display the Wards of the City of London, Postal Districts, Water, Electric and Gas Supplies, Underground Map, Sports Grounds, the Port of London, River Thames Wharves, Fire Brigades etc. A fascinating item. Provenance: with the ink stamp on the verso of the title page and all maps of the Edmonton Public Library.
