Royal Commission - City of London 1893

£70.00

Product description

Statement as to the Origin, position, powers, duties and Finance of the Corporation of London, Guildhall October 1893.

This report was from the fully entitled 'Royal Commission on the Amalgamation of the City and County of London' which considered the means for amalgamating the ancient City of London with the County of London, created in 1889. When the Conservative government came to power under Lord Roseberry in 1895, the idea was abandoned. In 1899 the idea was revisited and the London Government Bill introduced which divided the whole of the administrative county of London into metropolitan boroughs. A small piece of history, this report considered everything, from the open spaces, the schools, sewers and water supply, the hospitals and the Courts of Law.

Paper covered boards, paper spine. Type written titles to paste on label on front board. 1893. x456pp. Binding fair to poor. Hinge torn at page 1, held only by thread, paper to spine torn, possibly a repair with newer endpapers, boards grubby. However as it is of historical interest the book is being offered for sale.
