MAP OF LONDON

There's a useful map (as well as masses of information) in the
invaluable 'Topographical Dictionary to the Works of Shakespeare and his
Fellow Dramatists', by E. H. Sugden, Manchester 1925. Long out of print,
but should be available from a major library. I believe Manchester plan
a reprint.

Here is the full reference:

Adrian Prockter and Robert Taylor, 1979, *The A-Z of Elizabethan London*
(London Topographical Society Publication No. 122).

They also have them for other periods.
