About this Item

1st edition/1st printing of this two volume work in which, according to the bound-in "Advertisement", "the reader will find an account of London, partly topographical and historical, but chiefly recalling the memories of remarkable characters and events associated with its streets, between St. Paul's and St. James's". Leigh Hunt, the author, had been at one time imprisoned for "unfavorable reflections upon the Prince Regegent", was visited while there by Lord Byron and Charles Lamb among other literati. It was he who introduced Shelley to Keats. Both volumes are in very good condition bound in the original blind-stamped orange cloth. Both volumes bear the armorial bookplate of Oliver Brett, the Lord Esher. This edition includes 45 black & white illustrations. Bookseller Inventory # PG-27-CP
