London In The 18th Century (Hardback)
Jerry White's long-awaited finale to his acclaimed history of London over 300 years, London in the Eighteenth Century describes how, after rising from the ashes of the Great Fire, England's capital city was very much a new city. The 18th century was one of expansion, scientific genius, blossoming reason, civility, elegance and manners and was also an age of starving poverty and exquisite fashion, of joy and despair and of sentiment and cruelty. Everything was complicated by class and this tremendous portrait introduces us to the men and women, shopkeepers and prostitutes, street-robbers and thief-takers as they play out the drama of the times.
