London: A History in Maps

£30.00

Over the past 2000 years London has developed from a small town, fitting snugly within its walls, into one of the world's largest and most dynamic cities. London: A History in Maps illustrates and helps to explain the transformation using over 400 examples of maps.

Product details

Side-by-side with the great, semi-official but sanitised images of the whole city, there are the more utilitarian maps and plans of the parts - actual and envisaged - which perhaps present more than topographical records. They all have something unique to say about the time when they were created. Peter Barber's book reveals the 'inside story' behind one of the world's greatest cities.
