The Romance of London: Strange Stories, Scenes and Remarkable Persons of the Great Town.
London: Frederick Warne c. 1870. 2 volume set, 7 inches tall. A splendid Victorian full calf with gilt raised bands, twin labels, ornate gilt tooled panels, dentelles, gilt and blind rolls and gilt corner tools framing the boards. All edges gilt. Some foxing to the engraved frontispieces and title pages, otherwise clean. A delightful, anecdotal record of the bizarre and colourful events of old London town.
