Phillimore & Co, Hardcover, Book Condition: Fine Condition, Dust Jacket Condition: Fine, First Edition
An excellent copy, in Like New, unread condition. Bright, clean, glossy and unmarked. The book opens with an excellent overview of the subject, from the fire to the building regulations, building types, maturing and final decay, of brick built Stuart London. The reader is then walked though the districts of the rebuilt City of London in bite size pieces. Selected notable - and sometimes more humble - buildings are drawn to scale, often showing facades that have been altered or hidden since. Comments about their history, position, and subsequent fate allow you to relate them to the modern city. The text is concise, relevant and often fascinating. This is the perfect book for someone with an interest in historic London, its evolution, institutions and survival into the present day. Extensively illustrated. 208 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1250 grams. Category: Architecture; ISBN/EAN: 9781860771132. Inventory No: dscf4256.
