Wonderful maps, great analysis Sep 5, 2008
I originally came across this book while I was in London on vacation. At the time I could not purchase it due to luggage weight concerns, so I took a picture of the cover instead so that I could order it upon my return home.
This book is a wonderful historical review of the development of London through the eyes of its cartographers. The author must have taken an exorbinant amount of time collecting all of the maps necessary to show this history. I truely appreciated this book and have been reading it every night since I recieved it. Anyone who enjoys maps and has ever been to London should buy this book.
