Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

The squares of London are amongst its most famous and best loved features. Berkeley Square, Eaton Square, St James's Square - the names are inextricably linked with the history of London itself. And the great houses of the capital - Buckingham House, Apsley House, Spencer House, to mention but a few - are intimately bound with the story not just of London but of the great families of the land. Edwin Beresford Chancellor's two volumes form an absorbing and informative account of the history of two of London's defining features. First published almost a century ago, these rare volumes still provide the most comprehensive accounts of their subject in a single volume. Attractively illustrated, with a new Introduction by Simon Jenkins, and handsomely produced in large format, they will be welcomed by all those with an interest in London's architectural and cultural history.
