World Cities Yesterday and Today by Michael Swift Published in 2009 by Fall River Press
This is not an old book, but a book of old maps. According to the cover there are over 250 maps and satellite images. There are over 50 cities covered. All have a satellite image with the area the old maps cover highlighted in different colours. Some cities might only have one map, some have several.
Now I love an old map, so this is heaven for me. Lovely to browse though, but I can imagine a good reference book for a writer of historical fiction (or non fiction even).
Here are three of the maps.
This one is Edinburgh early 18th Century
Here’s New York 1821
