Cassini Maps are part of Cassini Publishing Ltd which was founded in 2005 with the aim of providing something unique – reprints of historical Ordnance Survey maps of England & Wales that matched the scale, projection and coverage of present-day Ordnance Survey 1:50,000-scale Landranger maps. This would let people compare the past and the present quickly and accurately for whatever reason they needed. Since then we’ve published over 500 historical maps. All are available on this web site and also at all good bookshops.

In summary, for every Landranger area of England, Wales and Edinburgh (123 areas in all) we produce three maps from three different periods (from 1805 to 1928) – these match each other and the corresponding Landranger in scale, projection and area of coverage. The three maps of each area are also available as a 3-map Box Set.
Then there’s our Past & Present series. Each map (there are currently 64) covers an area of roughly 10 x 10 miles, usually centered on a town or city, and provides four maps from four different periods, including the present day.

Finally, we have special 5-map Box Sets of Edinburgh, Liverpool and London which provide detailed coverage of these great British cities at various points in their development from 1805 to 1956 (dates vary from city to city).
