Stanford's Library Map of London was originally issued on 24 sheets with an Index Map. The Sheet Number and a "Key To Adjoining Sheets" was printed in the top margin of each sheet.

To produce the map displayed here, the 24 sheets were hand coloured and then trimmed, dissected, and laid onto a linen backing.

The large map was assembled from the 24 sheets as follows:

  North-West
   Sheet 1
   Sheet 2
   Sheet 5
   Sheet 6
   Sheet 9
   Sheet 10
