Sheet maps and drawings
The Library has a collection of sheet maps, stored in the map cabinet in the Foyle room alcove (classmark M). For anyone studying particularly the history of London and its surrounding counties, these are an excellent resource. The collection also includes various maps of other English counties, and other parts of Great Britain. Alongside the maps are various views and drawings and a few architectural sketches, mostly from the London Topographical Society.
Atlases and bound editions of maps
Map holdings in the rest of the IHR's collections are shelved according by subject area and are therefore spread across the library. Most of the geographical collections have a separate place for maps, although maps in particular subjects may be shelved according to the subject rather than material type. The following are a few examples, please ask for further help if you are interested in any particular collection not covered here.
