When London was Capital of America

£45.00

Product description

Hardback, Yale University Press, 2010. Very Good. Book is in excellent condition with only minor shelfwear on the spine of the cover. Dustjacket is in very good condition. First Edition Signed Copy. Benjamin Franklin secretly loved London more than Philadelphia: it was simply the most exciting place to be in the British Empire. And in the decade before the outbreak of the American Revolution, thousands of his fellow colonists flocked to the Georgian city in its first big wave of American visitors. In this first-ever portrait of eighteenth-century London as the capital of America, Julie M. Flavell re-creates the famous city's heyday as the center of an empire that encompassed North America and the West Indies. The stories of the colonials, no innocents abroad, vividly re-create a time when Americans saw London as their own and remind us of the complex, multiracial at times even decadent nature of America's colonial British heritage.
