Stow's Survey of London
Reprinted from the text of 1603
Two volumes, complete. Hardbacks, bound in the original blue cloth with gilt titling to spine and Stow's signature reproduced in gilt to the upper boards. Each 22.5 × 14.5cm, Vol 1: c + 352pp, volume 2: 476pp.
This edition contains a life of Stow, and other supporting biographical materials. The Survey of London is Stow's most famous work, with its evocative ‘perambulation’ of the streets of the Tudor capital, as it gives a detailed account of the buildings, social conditions and customs of London in the time of Queen Elizabeth I.
Both books are in generally very good condition. There is mild rubbing to the boards and foxing to both books at the endpapers but the bindings are intact and the books in strong readable condition. Also included is a small quantity of bumpf pertaining to John Stow commemorations.
