From the Back Cover:

'... This is the perfect introduction to 18th century London and a wonderful companion for readers of Johnson and Boswell...' --'Washington Post Book World'

Review:

"Rich in facts and anecdotes, this is the perfect introduction to 18th-century London and a wonderful companion for readers of Johnson and Boswell. . . . Schwartz starts with the sights, sound, and smells of the metropolis--a city of steeples, chimneys, coal smoke, and intolerable street noise--and surveys in succession Work and Money, Pastimes and Pleasures, Daily Routines and Domestic Life, Travel and Transportation, and Health and Hygiene and concludes with a gallery of street 'Londoners, ' an independent and assertive lot, notably insolent to foreigners, especially those in French clothes."--"Washington Post Book World"

"An excellent source for English Literature and history students studying this period or Samuel Johnson."--"Booklist"
"Outstanding. . . . The author packs a remarkable quantity of detail into a small space, even including a discussion of price and wage figures that will be intelligible to Americans [today]. . . . His prose is lucid, graceful, lively. Generously illustrated, the book also includes an extensive bibliography."--"Choice"
