Ancestry isn’t known for making maps available, so this new title England, Wales, Scotland and Isle of Man, Old Series Maps, 1805-1874 is exceptional.
It contains 50,192 index entries of topographic maps of England, Wales, Scotland, and the Isle of Man published between 1805 and 1874. There are links to maps for the index entry. The date of the map was not given, it could be anywhere in the 70 year range!
