London - World City 1800-1840

£20.00

Product description

Published 1992 by Yale University Press in association with the Museum of London. Hardback. Dark green cloth board covers with lettering on spine. Dust jacket. Very faint age-darkening of inside pages. Small tear to the top of the dust jacket. Otherwise in very good condition throughout.

This book provides a portrait of the city of London in a period when Britain enjoyed cultural, artistic, technological and material pre-eminence. It was a time when the foundations were laid for much later wealth and power.

The importance of Britain in the early 19th century has been taken up by the Kulturstiftung Ruhur in Essen, who, in co-operation with the Museum of London have mounted an historical exhibition at the Villa Hugel near Essen (June-December 1992), for which this book serves as the catalogue.

The exhibition itself is very broad in scope, ranging from artistic masterpieces by Turner and Constable through scientific and technological wonders of the age.

The book begins with 14 essays by major British scholars on aspects of urban life, from the Coronation of George IV to the rise of popular radicalism in political and economic thought. London nourished a wide variety of aspirations; its art, theatre, and economic achievements in this 40-year span were notable. The remainder of this large work is devoted to the actual exhibition catalogue.
