Boyle's View of London and its Environs —  £ 5.99

Go to the eBook Shop Patrick Boyle had been publishing his 'Court-City Guide' for some time before he decided there could be a need for a more general work that might be met 'with encouragement in the polite and commercial world'. This book is the result.

It was small enough to fit in a pocket and could be used by anyone needing to find their way around London, find a place to worship or meet like-minded people. It includes not just streets and business premises, but also Coffee Houses, Inns, Dissenters Meetings, Places of Entertainment and a complete list of Freemasons Lodges etc. There are over 10,000 entries in total. A fascinating glimpse of 18th century London with many wonderful, unfortunately long-gone place names.

This eBook version contains the entire text. Please see the extract below for a list of the contents and a selection of entries.

This turned out to be the only edition, although a reprint was published in 1802.

The text below is identical to the eBook; however, depending on the typeface, etc., that you select it may not display here exactly as it will on your eReader. Also, pages turn as normal, rather than the scrolling effect seen here.
