The A to Z of Regency London 1813
Item Reference: BKS1193
Laxton, P. & Wisdom, J. The A to Z of Regency London. London, 1985. 116 pages. Cloth, jacket. This A to Z of the streets of London represents the third in a handy series of historical atlases. Based on a survey of the capital originally undertaken by Richard Horwood in 1792-9 and updated by William Faden in 1813, it not only shows all the streets, lanes, courts, yards and alleys in what was then the largest city in the world, but attempts to show every individual building with its street number. The A to Z of Regency London presents the London of Charles Lamb, Thomas Lawrence, Edmund Kean, Beau Brummell, and the Prince Regent in astonishing detail. It should prove an indispensable reference tool for historians, geographers, and genealogists.
