Although essentially a guide for visitors, this book is also an excellent read containing well written descriptions of pretty well everything a tourist might wish to know if he were visiting London a century and a half ago. Much can also be learned about how daily life then differed from ours today. Some things were better such as the workings of the Post Office. But much was worse including the appalling sewage arrangements. A jewel of a book for anyone wishing to explore London during the first half of Victoria's reign. Fold out map to ffep. 316pp. Index. Size: 8vo Foolscap (6¾" x 4")
