This map is an important primary source for historians of London and the general enthusiast. The original map was constructed just ten years after the Great Fire of London (1666). The great value of the plan is that it is very detailed. Ogilby and Morgan attempt to name not only every thoroughfare, but side streets, alleys and courts. Their scope was more ambitious still: Ogilby and Morgan's map attempts to deliniate every single building in the City. This map is certainly the best surviving map of London from this period.
Ralph Hyde's helpful introduction explains how the map came to be constructed and examines its usefulness and faults.
