This England - - This England Gifts -

This spec­tac­u­lar large-for­mat book re­pro­duces as­ton­ish­ing his­toric pho­to­graphs which cap­ture in­di­vid­ual build­ings and streets that were on the thresh­old of re­de­vel­op­ment. Com­bin­ing en­large­ments of over 180 pho­to­graphs se­lected from Lost Lon­don, along with more than 100 pre­vi­ously un­seen im­ages, this beau­ti­ful land­scape-for­mat book al­lows the reader to see a wealth of hid­den de­tail in these his­toric pic­tures and en­joy re­mark­able panoramic views of Lon­don’s bustling streets (320pp, hard­back).

“A glo­ri­ous and mon­u­men­tal piece of work”- Bill Bryson

“… ghostly fig­ures, shad­ows, cob­bles, shut­ters, drains, steps, awn­ings, wood, glass, car­pet, cab­bages, leather and brush in­ter­twine long-for­got­ten lives in such a way that it is im­pos­si­ble not to be drawn in” Sun­day Tele­graph – Lucy Davies

“... the book is a su­perb con­tri­bu­tion to so­cial his­tory, the photos to be “read” again and again” - The Spec­ta­tor
