Product Description

Product Description

Dr. Johnson’s Opinions of London.—“It is not in the showy evolution of buildings, but in the multiplicity of human habitations, that the wonderful immensity of London consists.... The happiness of London is not to be conceived but by those who have been in it. I will venture to say there is more learning and science within the circumference of where we now sit than in all the rest of the kingdom.... A man stores his mind [in London] better than anywhere else.... No place cures a man’s vanity or arrogance so well as London, for no man is either great or good, per se, but as compared with others, not so good or great, and he is sure to find in the metropolis many his equals and some his superiors.... No man of letters leaves London without regret.... By seeing London I have seen as much of life as the world can show.... When a man is tired of London he is tired of life, for there is in London all life can afford, and [London] is the fountain of intelligence and pleasure.”—Boswell’s Life of Johnson.

Boswell’s Opinion of London.—“I have often amused myself with thinking how different a place London is to different people. They whose narrow minds are contracted to the consideration of some one particular pursuit, view it only through that medium, a politician thinks of it merely as the seat of government, etc.; but the intellectual man is struck with it as comprehending the whole of human life in all its variety, the contemplation of which is inexhaustible.”— Boswell’s Life of Johnson (Croker, 1848)

2.0 out of 5 stars Ghost stories? Not so much... 4 Sep 2013
By Amanda J. - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book expecting creepy ghost stories. Let's just say I was deeply disappointed. This book is more of a history lesson wanna be than a collection of supernatural lore.

This is a History book of the day, on "what notable person(s) lived in a particular London residence ". It is not meant to be a book of London's haunted .areas.
