Re: [pepysdiary] Map of London
- Any volume I-IX of the Latham and Matthews edition of *The Diary of Samuel
has maps of "London in the Sixteen-Sixties" in two halves, 2 pages each,
after the text and before the "Select List of Persons" and "Select Glossary"
that conclude the volume. These maps have lists of the buildings and landmarks
Pepys mentions in the Diary. A photocopy of these 4 pages can be fetched
from a library
and should be quite helpful.

- Providing you have a broadband connection you may find some help from
the British Library's virtual exhibition (London: A Life in Maps
http://www.bl.uk/londoninmaps ) and its google map and earth overlays.
