Readers interested in maps of British cultural history and literature may enjoy Romantic London, "a research project exploring life and culture in London around the turn of the nineteenth century." This project uses Richard Horwood's late eighteenth-century Plan of the Cities of London and Westminster juxtaposed with modern maps of the city "as a means of thinking about how writers, publishers and artists chose to represent London's general character and particularities." Here, readers will find a wealth of maps, information, and annotations about Horwood's Plan and the many other texts that are in conversation with each other, such as Rudolph Ackermann's Microcosm of London (1808-1810), Richard Phillips' Modern London (1804), and the 1850 edition of William Wordsworth's autobiographical poem The Prelude. Romantic London was created by Matthew Sangster, a lecturer in English Literature at the University of Glasgow.
