London: A Cultural and Literary History

Front Cover
Signal, 2006 - Literary landmarks - 285 pages
Describes how London has been chronicled, described, celebrated, named and mapped over the twenty centuries of its existence to become a city treasured even by those who have never set foot in it as a byword for innovation and diversity. This is a book for both Londoners and visitors. It has been written for those who, knowing London, know that it is too vast, too complex, too elusive ever to be known but yet would know it better still.
