This map isn't part of any series, but we have other maps of Chicago that you might want to check out.

Here's another take (this one J H Colton's) on "Chicago showing the burnt district."

That goddamn fire must've been one hell of a big deal, for all the maps it spawned. The only other non-war disaster that I can think of spawning as many maps is the 1906 SF earthquake.

For more map resources and imagery from this period in Chicago's history, check out the Illinois State Historical Society's website.
