Gustave Dore was at the height of his considerable powers when he was asked to undertake a portrait of london, at the time the capital of the mightiest nation on earth. The drawings that came out of this project reveal a city full of energy, pride, innovation, variety and contradictions. Set beside all 180 images in this beautiful edition are the ideal accompaniments, carefully selected contemporary texts which reveal the many and varied facets of London life in the 19th century, from high to low. Includes writings by: Charles Dickens, Anthony Trollope, Hippolyte Taine, Oscar Wilde, William Makepeace Thackeray, Henry Mayhew and Benjamin Disraeli
