Footnotes

  • Nine years in the making this was "the largest map then printed in Britain and shows the city in extraordinary detail. Horwood attempted, in many areas successfully, to show each individual building, the first such attempt since Ogilby and Morgan's map of 1676, and he also attempted to number the buildings, an enterprise unmatched until the 1930s" (ODNB).
