maps of london through the centuries

The British Library has made available online the Crace Collection of Maps of London, “the essential guide to the development of the capital from the 16th to the 19th centuries, brought together by the Victorian designer, Frederick Crace.” This exhibit is part of a BL site entitled Collect Britain, “the British Library’s largest digitisation project to date … By summer 2004 you can view and hear a staggering 100,000 images and sounds from our world-renowned collections without ever needing to visit the prestigious building in London.” (via Andrew Pink on C18-L)
