Blk patterned boards; fairly light wear; rebacked - original backstrip re-used; slight wear to corners. Gilt titling on spine a little dull, but still quite legible. Occasional spotting, but pp quite supple. B/w illustrations. Very useful guide to mid-Victorian London for the curious time-traveller. The book is undated, but the authorities seem to agree on 1852, though I can find no references to the Great Exhibition of 1851 (which you might have expected to be a feature of such a publication), so perhaps it was published earlier. ; 8vo (5" x 7 1/2"); 306 pages
