Product Description

Book Description

A unique book collecting together London's wit and wisdom: quotations from famous Londoners old and new, all about the world's greatest city.

From the Inside Flap

London has been one of the world’s great cities for over 2,000 years and has produced countless scholars, artists, rogues and wits, each of whom left their mark on the metropolis by their words or deeds.

The Wit and Wisdom of London brings together their best and most memorable quotations: a treasury of the cleverest, the wittiest, and the bawdiest sayings of the city’s greatest residents, who happily pontificate on all aspects of London life, from thoughts on the city itself and the historical events that shaped it, to wry observations on the lives, lusts and lies of the people who have lived there.

From the Romans to Amy Winehouse, via Doctor Johnson and Dickens, and from the aristocrats of Westminster to the paupers of the East End, The Wit and Wisdom of London captures the essence of London, in the words of its people.
