Allen, Thomas

The History and Antiquities of London, Westminster, Southwark, and Parts Adjacent.

Published: London: Cowie & Stange

Date: 1827

First edition. 4 vols. 8vo., pp. [x], 468, [xviii] (final leaf blank) + 6 plates; [viii], 589, [i] + 4 plates; [x], 788 + 17 plates; [x], 574 + 11 plates. Numerous further wood engravings to text. Title-pages a bit toned, sporadic foxing mostly affecting the plates and their adjacent pages. Contemporary marbled paper-covered boards recently neatly rebacked, spines gilt with red labels, endpapers renewed. Rubbed, board edges worn, corners frayed, but still a very good, sound set.

This copy bound without the often-lacking second plate of St Paul’s Cathedral that should be found opposite p.275, vol.III. Instead, two extra plates not called for (showing St Martins Outwich and St Giles Parish) are bound into vol.I opposite p.25 and p.73 respectively.
