    This is a beautiful book; highly recommended for lovers of history and maps. Yes, some of the maps require a magnifying glass, but that is also true of other large-size map books in my collection. I love reading history, and seeing where events were happening.

    A wonderful resource for writers and historians. This comprehensive study of London from when it was a lot of fields to its central position in the world is worth every penny.
