ASSOCIATIONS. 16mo, 18.
In Preparation, HANDBOOK TO THE ENVIRONS OF LONDON.
A CAREFUL revision has been given to this work before presenting it again to the Public. It was originally compiled by Mr. Peter Cunningham, but it is proper to state that Mr. Cunningham is not responsible for the present nor any recent Editions of this Book.
A full historical description of London, and of
houses and streets no longer existing, will be found
in “The Handbook for London, Past and Present,"
of which a New Edition is being prepared.
