Maybe a bit strange for a woman, but I love maps. I got the 1520 - 1902 set first, which I came across in Hatchards in Piccadilly and had to have them. I then bought the 1863 lot from Amazon and have poured over them for hours. It's amazing to see London as it used to be and especially interesting to locate your own area and see what has changed and what has stayed the same. They would also be of use to family historians, who, like me, had ancestors living in the capital in the Victorian era. Great stuff.

The detailing on these maps is fantastic. They really do contain the kind of intricate information that's priceless to anyone researching their London ancesters. The text is clearly printed and the maps themselves are beautifully coloured and printed on thick, glossy paper to withstand many re-foldings.

Only one small issue prevents me from giving these maps 5-stars. There's no street index. If you've never seen the street you're looking for on another map, you'll never find it here - you either need local knowledge or a reference like The A to Z of Victorian London. That aside, these are fantastic maps and absolutely worth the price.

Having an interest in the East End of London, buying these maps helped me to see just what was in the areas at particular periods.
Seeing the changes on paper and then seeing them in person really brings out the flavour of the times.

Very interesting and well made maps, I don't really see why they felt the need to put bright red postcode borders though (NW NE SW SE WC EC)
Also there is a spelling mistake and Blackfriars Bridge is called Black riars Bridge.
Also says it includes Stratford but it actually stops at Bow.

These are okay for random old maps of London, but they are random as to the time/place of them. They look fine if you want to frame them and put them on your wall as art, but there isn't really enough information on them if you want them to inform you about London's streets. The paper quality feels a little cheap too.

These maps are not cheap, or value for money, but they certainly are good for the serious London historian. They are quite detailed, with the name of every alley and terrace clearly indicated. Invaluable for investigating street name changes, these maps show how little parts of London have really changed since 1863.

An excellent product - well packaged and the maps themselves as clearly detailed as led to believe. I would however have liked to know beforehand the extent on the areas covered.

A valuable aid to assist in studies of London at that time, London today is crowded but Victorian London was much more so. Little wonder there was so much disease. This is a good starting point to get to know London better
