London:  This book concentrates on the seedy rather than the smart, the outcast rather than the established and the bizarre rather than the beautiful.  Contributors include G.K. Chesterton, Daniel Defoe, Hilaire Belloc, Charles Dickens, Thomas Hardy, Michael Moorcock, Samuel Pepys, Edith Sitwell, H.G. Wells and many more.  A view of London that spans the centuries, with such intriguing chapter titles as The Face On Waterloo Steps; London Molehills; Mobs, Marches Riots and Affrays; Clubs, Taverns and Coffee Houses and ‘When A Man Is Tired Of London’.
