LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Blackie & Son, Old Bailey, London. March, 1880. . This volume comprises a series of articles, in which an attempt has been made to give some idea of the former aspect of London at various times, but which treat more especially of its principal charateristics as they at present exist. The publishers believe that readers in general who are interested in the past and present of the great Metropolis will find collected in it, in a readable and handy form, a store of information not to be obtained otherwise except from large and somewhat costly publications. In order to give greater completeness, brief descriptions of the metropolitan counties have been prefixed, while the illustrations interspersed through the letter- press will add both to its value and its interest. In the compilation of the book the most recent authorities have been freely made use of, and many of the descriptive papers are either extracts from, or to a large extent based on, such works on the metropolis as those of Knight, Cunningham, Timbs, Thornbury, Walford, and others. Bumped corners and minor scuffing. A little end paper soiling and foxing evident otherwise in excellent condition. Gilt titles to end boards with the Crest of London. 288pp 170 x 110mm
