"The London of Hanoverian England ... when duallists met in Marybone Fields ... when the humble mingled with the distinguished in the gay and fashionable Ranelagh Gardens ... the days of gay brocades, silks and satins, and sedan chairs.

Here, in this book, Mr Crawford Snowden tells the story of the London so accurately surveyed by the great topographer, John Rocque, whose map is here reproduced in twenty-four sections.

And to add colour to the story and the maps, a fine selection of photographs and engravings are included to make an absorbing story of 18th century London."
