Decorated brown leather boards; fairly light wear; corners sharp; front board partially detached; raised bands on spine; gilt decoration on front + spine still quit bright. Binding tight; pp square cut; speckled foredges. B/w illustrations. There's some spotting (though not heavy), as might be expected in a book nearly three centuries old, but the pages are surprisingly supple. A fascinating 18th Century history of London, as well as being an important contemporary guide to that Hanoverian metropolis. ; 8vo (4" x 7"); 468 + pblr's cat. pages
