This 1851 map of London by Joseph Cross was produced for visitors to London during the Great Exhibition of 1851 in Hyde Park. This map is unique amongst the MAPCO collection as it printed on silk, the texture of which is clearly visible in the scans. It has suffered some staining over the years, the eastern sections of the map having a water stain showing over the entire height of the map. Despite this flaw the map is in excellent condition for its age, given that it is printed directly onto silk and is not reinforced in any way. The hand colouring is still bright and vibrant after 156 years.
