London: A History
Francis Sheppard (au). London has for most of 2,000 years been the hub of the political, economic, & cultural life of the British Isles. No other city has held such a dominant national position for so long. This is the first complete history of London’s diverse past, from its origins as a Roman settlement at the first bridging of the Thames to the world-class metropolis it is today. Provides a vivid account of a city which was the ‘deere sweete’ place which Chaucer loved more than any other city on earth, & which was for Dickens his ‘magic lantern’. Also a story of much contrast & remarkable resilience; through great fires & pestilence, civil war, & the Blitz, London has rebuilt & reinvented itself for each generation. Illus.
