4th edition. — London : John Murray, Albemarle street, 1856. — LII, 316 p., ill.In my advertisement to the third edition of this work, I observed “that I had endeavoured to place myself in the position of a well-informed guide seeking to give a stranger in London every requisite information respecting lodgings, eating-houses, places of amusement, &c; of one whose aim it had been to point out those features of the metropolis best worth seeing, with the way in which they might be seen to the best advantage.” In this new edition I have sought to carry out the same intention; have made many additions and corrections; and, as far as it was possible, have brought up all useful information to the day of publication. For other particulars, as well as for a more detailed and historical account of antiquarian London, and of streets and places no longer existing, I must refer the reader to the “Handbook for London, Past and Present.”ContentsIntroductory Hints and Suggestions Palaces of the Sovereign and Household Offices Houses of the Principal Nobility and Gentry Parks and Public Gardens Houses of Parliament The Thames and its Bridges, Thames Tunnel, Pool and Port of London Government Offices Commercial Buildings and Docks Markets Breweries Water Companies Sewerage Tower of London Churches Cemeteries Courts of Law and Justice Inns of Court and Chancery Prisons, Penitentiaries, and Places of Execution Permanent Free Exhibitions Theatres and Places or Amusement Learned Institutions Colleges and Schools Hospitals and Charitable Institutions Club Houses The City and the Citizens Eminent Persons born in London Eminent Persons buried in London Houses in which eminent persons have lived Streets, &c, (houses unknown or not standing) in which eminent men have lived Places and Sites connected with remarkable events Out-door Monuments and Public Statues Principal Thoroughfares, Squares, and Lanes Index
