London County Council: London Statistics 1933-34

£50.00

Product description

The London County Council (LCC) (1889-1965) was the principal local government body for the County of London and the first London-wide general municipal authority to be directly elected. It covered the area today known as Inner London and was replaced by the Greater London Council. The LCC was the largest, most significant and most ambitious English municipal authority of its day. In order to carry out its many statutory duties (from education, planning and housing to management of museums and licensing of boxing matches), regular statistics were needed, and were collected and collated annually in volumes such as this, issued in 1935 and referring to the years 1933-34.

Our copy is in excellent condition, bound in dark blue-grey cloth with the title etc in white lettering on the front, and in gilt on the spine; the emblem of the City of London is in gilt on the front. There is only minor wear externally - minor bumping of corners, and a little shelf wear to top & bottom of the spine, but with no frank damage. Inside, the binding is firm and all pages are clean and bright. The 2 folding maps are present and undamaged. A previous owner's name has been neatly effaced on the front fep. There is some foxing on the first few pages, at the top of the textblock, and on the (somewhat browned) endpapers, but none in the body of the book. A fascinating volume for anyone interested in local administration and the history thereof.
