Description - The London Encyclopaedia by Ben Weinreb

'There is no one-volume book in print that carries so much valuable information on London and its history.' Illustrated London News The London Encyclopaedia is the most comprehensive book on London ever published. In its first new edition in over ten years, completely revised and updated, it comprises some 6,000 entries, organised alphabetically, cross-referenced and supported by two large indexes -- one for the 10,000 people mentioned in the text and one general -- and is illustrated with over 500 drawings, prints and photographs. Everything that is important in the history and culture of the capital is documented, whether vanished or extant, from its first settlement to the present day. 'Written in very accessible prose with a range of memorable quotations and affectionate jokes...a monumental achievement written with real love.' Financial Times 'If I had my way this book would be in every cab in London.' London Cabbie News
