5.0 out of 5 stars London: A History in Maps
If you are interested in history, and love maps, this is a a good book to get. There is a wide variety of maps, of the whole of London, and also smaller areas. Different eras of history are covered, and the maps support the facts. I am really enjoying reading the book and studying the maps.

3.0 out of 5 stars Although I was disappointed as it was quite inexepsive I decided to keep ...
I was expecting to see a complete street map of Elozabethan London, especially as many street names are still in existence. This map shows general areas such as Smithfield and the bridges. Although I was disappointed as it was quite inexepsive I decided to keep it. It is a good-looking map on good quality paper.

This review is from: London: A History in Maps (London Topographical Society Publication) (Hardcover)
This is totally absorbing - but of course most of the maps can be enjoyed only with a large magnifying glass. It is amazing to see the evolution of London, where I was born, and was a student, though Guernsey has always been my "home".
There has been layer upon layer of generations of populations.
