About this Item

Every page adorned with beautiful chromolithographic illustrations of Victorian life in London. The quality and nature of the Thomas Crane illustration are very much of their day, with similar colouring and impression to his contempories such as Walter Crane (his brother) and Kate Greenaway. There are some wonderful views of the Tower of London, Covent Garden, The British Museum and the Zoo - all captured at the end of the 19th century. This was written as a companion volume to Abroad, a copy of which I also have for sale, and At Home. London Town is however the more scarce volume. Specific condition: Binding: Corners worning and edges / top and bottom of backstrip rubbed. Lovely illustrated front and rear end papers are all intact. The quires have become a little loose as the strings have relaxed, but it is all fully intact. Internal: Some browning to a few page edges, otherwise very good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

They represent presents which are investments as well as being romantic.If you don't have the time to search for that special book, just let us know and we can help you and perhaps assist in finding that special present. It is our intention to please all of our customers and to this end we attempt to provide very thorough and realistic descriptions of all of our books. All books are described in accordance with the guide published by the Antiquarian Booksellers¿ Association (see http://www.aba.org.uk) and the overall condition is defined as per the Abebooks glossary. As we recognise it can be difficult to buy a book ¿unseen¿ we attempt to be very thorough in the descriptions. Most books we advertise via Abebooks should be supported by a photograph. Unfortunately Abebooks limit the photos to 35kb which will only allow for one view. If you require any additional photographs, or indeed any additional information, please e-mail and we will be more than pleased to oblige. We also have many more children's books for sale that are not yet catalogued on ABE, please contact us if you have any special requests or interest.
