In chronological order of publication, my top three:
London in the Eighteenth Century: A Great and Monstrous Thing by Jerry White.
Having covered London in the 19th and 20th Centuries in earlier works, this is Professor White’s masterpiece. Over a decade in the making, published back in March and not yet reviewed by me, I’m ashamed to say. I probably wouldn’t know where to start: loved it.
One finished, don’t miss the other two which are still running. My top three.
