Fine nineteenth century tourist guide to the city. Complete with folding map in front pocket. The map (21 x 14") is an uncolored lithograph of the city and surrounding countryside with astounding detail. It covers from Chesham to Epping in the north and from Frimley to Shoreham Place south of the city. On verso is a map of the city center. The map is printed on heavy paper by Stanford. One small tear entering 1/2" into map and easily repaired, else fine. The book was prepared especially for American travelers in association with Rand McNally. 206 pp including several advertisements. Hardbound with red embossed cloth. Minor shelf wear, overall very good.
