Cat No.:   GB0989:

Walter Thornbury 1897 - 6 Volumes

"Writing the history of a vast city like London is like writing the history of an ocean - the area is so vast, its inhabitants are so multifarious, the treasures that lie in its depths are so countless."

"In histories, in biographies, in scientific records, and in chronicles of the past, however humble, let us gather materials for a record of the great and the wise, the base and the noble, the odd and the witty, who have inhabited London and left their names upon its walls".

This is an immense work, and includes many hundreds of illustrations from old engravings throughout the ages, illustrating buildings, events and general scenes of interest.
