Cassell's 'immense map' of London was prepared for the Weekly Dispatch and published in nine parts between January 1861 and April 1862. This example with the Cassell imprint probably appeared with Cassell’s illustrated family paper the following year. It reappeared in varying forms thereafter: the plates were later used for Bacon's Library Map of London and Suburbs and as a base-map for other G.W. Bacon publications well into the 1870s. The maps are notable for their scale, clarity and detail.
