To anyone with an interest in the Capital this book will be a treasure, and, I can imagine it gracing many coffee tables and being actively dipped in and out of with some frequency. It also makes an excellent gift for visitors to London. The only shortcoming I can see in this book is, simply, the fact that it is a coventional book - the wealth of data (especially around economics and demographics etc.) contained in it will eventually become out of date. However, the paradox is that if this Atlas were presented as an e-book, or, series of webpages the sumptuous nature of its' presentation would be lost. This is a magnificent book, and, it is a fitting tribute to the greatness of London which makes it a great reference work, keepsake or gift. Recommended.
It is an amazing publication. With maps and brief hsitorys of all the different districts of London. I love it. Hours and hours of interesting information.
In including so many subjects each topic is necessarily covered briefly, but the book is a treasure trove of anecdotes and information. The 304 pages are rather larger than 12 inches by 10 inches so it is a heavy book suited for coffee table use, with no topic having more than two pages devoted to it. The slipcase protects it when it is not being read.
The reproductions of engravings and the many photographs are sumptuous. This is a quality product, as suggested by the recommended retail price of £50. I paid just over one-quarter of that figure (not from Amazon) but I would have been happy to pay twice as much. It would make a wonderful gift for anybody who has lived, does live, or wishes to live in London - or indeed anybody who is interested in our capital city.
