  • Cassell's 'immense map' of London was prepared for the Weekly Dispatch and published in nine parts between January 1861 and April 1862. This is the first of six accompanying suburban sheets, which cannot be joined to the main map in continuation of it.

    The maps reappeared in various forms thereafter: the plates were later used for Bacon's Library Map of London and Suburbs and as a base-map for other GW Bacon publications well into the 1870s. The maps are notable for their scale, clarity and detail. .
