Johnson's Life of London - Signed

£40.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Boris Johnson's new book explores this cross current of influences between Westminster and the City, between the politicians and the wealth creators, over many centuries from Boudacea to the Rolling Stones.JOHNSON'S LIFE OF LONDON - a fitting tribute of course to one of the greatest Londoners - celebrates many of the characters who have made this city great. The book provides a chronological story of London but is written in the form of a relay race of biographies - some very famous figures, some more obscure. He ranges from the Romans to one of the author's predecessors as mayor, Dick Whittington; from John Wilkes (a strong upholder of the freedom of the press) to J.W. Turner; from Chaucer to Gandhi, and through to modern times. Boris Johnson writes with wit and erudition, providing the reader with delightful insights. The book discovers London as none of us have seen it before and the journey is exhilarating and surprising.

This is a First Edition, signed by the author published by Harper Press in 2001. In very good used condition, unclipped dustcover, with minor bumping to base of spine. Publication: Harper Press 2001
