Looking at the Amazon website, this appears to be a smaller half price version of an earlier editionThe Times Atlas of London: The story of a great city through maps, history and culture. The historical and modern maps are excellent as is the text. I wonder if it is a replacement for, or in addition to the equally brilliant History of London by Hugh Clout, The Times History of London: An Outstanding Illustrated Survey of One of the World's Greatest Citiesalso published by Times. These two publications are very different and for anyone who likes the Atlas, it would certainly worth obtaining the History which also includes many historical maps.

It is a pity that Times have not included their brilliant 10 inch to 1 mile mapping of the City and West End of London from their 1968 Reference Atlas of Greater London as they have found room for other historical maps.

The modern maps included are brilliant, but unfortunately, cannot be fully accessed in this version of the book; I wonder if they are better portrayed in the larger, more expensive version. The Greater London maps have a massive full page overlap from east to west, much larger than the norh to south overlap, but unfortunately, this puts the map area from the edge of one plate at the very centre of the next! It is frustrating that most of the map is duplicated in the overlap, but the very area that is not duplicated, disappears into the centre binding. I recon about 2 cm of mapping is lost at the binding on each plate.

Excellent, very detailed 'atlas' of London containing loads of old and new photos, historical map extracts and detailed, potted histories borough by borough. Great reference book with a wealth of info for the history-lover and geographer. We visit London several times a year and always use it beforehand and after visits.

If you like London you'll love this. Because it covers all the Boroughs it has huge advantages over a tourist guidebook that necessarily concentrates on central sites. Anyone moving to London should get a copy. It also has historical material of value.

What a lovely book to read and read again. Very interesting going through London borough by borough. As we visit London a few times a year it interests me about the history and how it's changed over the years. Definately worth buying and using as reference.

A wonderful little book. Wonderful pictures showcasing many places I had never heard of, and I thought I knew London moderately well. I could not disagree with Andrew Taylor's comments on the binding, but this is not a field guide, and Google maps can fill in any deficiency in the book's maps. I love the older maps, and I don't find legibility to be a problem, and some of the local maps. All in all, an excellent guide to London. Together with the Brewer's Guide to London Fable and Ed Glinert's London Compendium there are few details of London not covered.

beautiful and very interesting book for anyone who is interested in the historical development of a city from its beginning. Beautiful cartographic material and interesting texts make this book a collectors item, even for non-British citizens
