5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book
This item was bought for a gift for a friend. It is a beautiful journal, it makes a great refernece book for all ages with excellent clear illustrations. This book is detailed enough for a historian but well written enough to interest the man in the street. A really nice book that can be read cover to cover (would take some time), but also can be dipped into as required...

Given as a present to a primary school in France and was useful in that context. Generated some very good questions about London.

This book is detailed enough for a historian but well written enough to interest the man in the street. A really nice book that can be read cover to cover (would take some time), but also can be dipped into as required for reference. Lots of infomation and so good value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant detail - stunning book., 14 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: London: The Illustrated History (Paperback)
This book is a superb trip through London over the centuries. It can be read as a book, or it can be 'dipped into' if you want to learn about a particular era. It covers the development of London from when it was a simple settlement right up to the building of the Gherkin and London today. Stunning pictures accompany your 'journey'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating pictorial history of London, 4 Aug 2014

This review is from: London: The Illustrated History (Paperback)
I've been fascinated by the history of London for years and have read many wonderful books about its early and later development. Several years ago I stumbled across London: The Illustrated History in my favourite Melbourne bookshop, Readings.
The illustrations and text are excellent and graphically portray the various stages of London from its beginnings. I often refer to it while reading English history or pursuing my genealogical research. My young grandson, who lives in London, visited us here in Australia last Easter and he couldn't put it down. He enjoyed it so much that I ordered a copy a copy for him and he was pleasantly surprised to receive it back home in London a couple of weeks.
I highly recommend this book

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, 1 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: London: The Illustrated History (Paperback)
This book is really fascinating.
It is a big book, but it is broken into short sections, so one can read about the bits that interest you most and then go back to other bits another day.
I really enjoyed the more recent history such as the advent of gas & then electric street lighting.
Quite a number of my ancestors were from London and it was interesting to find out what life would have been like for them in the capital.
The illustrations are good too and the book would make a useful reference book for younger history students.

This review is from: London: The Illustrated History (Paperback)
I bought this for my 81 year old father who was born in London but left in his late 20s and he absolutely loves it! Easy to dip into with lots of fascinating insights and beautiful pictures. Could easily be enjoyed by a young teenager up to an elderly OAP!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good coffee table book, 6 Nov 2014

This review is from: London: The Illustrated History (Paperback)
Saw this book on sale after a worthwhile trip to the Museum of London. The price of the book there was twenty pounds. So it it well worth the saving getting it from Amazon. A wonderful coffee table book, full of good descriptions and illustrations.
