Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This volume follows the familiar format with others in this series published in association with London's Guildhall Library, and is up to the publisher's usual high standards. this work on Restoration London is based on John Ogilby and William Morgan's map of the city.

The introduction is written by Ralph Hyde, who provides a concise background history of the map's creation and its reliability. There then follows forty pages in which the map is presented in astonishing detail. The remaining ten pages comprise a comprehensive place-name and symbol index to the map.

It goes without saying that this volume is of supreme utility for those exploring the London of Charles II, especially for those interested in the effects of the Great Fire of 1666. The only criticism is the map chosen focuses almost exclusively on the City and so does not extend to Westminster or south of the river. Despite this, the suburbs beyond the line of the Roman wall are delineated as far north as Clerkenwell and as far west as Lincoln Inn's Fields and Somerset House.
