I have read many, many histories of London and almost every one has used or quoted Stow's Survey. I decided to read it on its own. It is like a time machine in print....very small print.
I found this one where the spelling is modernized somewhat and have been enjoying it immensely. I am a real London fan...the London that isn't there any longer.
The type is very small and I keep a magnifying glass nearby because after a while, the type does tire the eyes. I also keep my map close at hand too.
Each of the 26 wards of the old city are examined for boundaries, ancient buildings...churches and monuments to those buried there and the local guild halls...and then other streets and less imposing buildings are described along with an explanation of events which happened there.
It is the same pattern for all 26 wards. There is a list of all the mayors who served in the past and other supplimental information.
This book certainly doesn't have a wide appeal, but I found it rewarding to read and sometimes when I would be interrupted by my partner while reading, I had the feeling that I was coming back in time and it startled me a bit.
If you are a "London geek" like me, I would recommend this book. Stow was an admirable scholar who left such a rich amount of information but got cheated of his
just rewards and died penniless. He lived in a time of treachery and greed and was a man better than his times.

Stow's Survey covers the entire city of London in VERY close detail, and is a superb introduction to the city in its Elizabethan guise. Published a year before The Theatre was moved across the river to become the Globe Theatre, it's a tantalizing look at the city just at the moment when English theatre was beginning to produce the great world classics for which it is famed. A must-have for those who love the city, for Shakespeareans and English history buffs--and even for writers of historical novels (e.g. Antonia Fraser, who wrote the introduction), as well as those writing engaging barstool histories such as Pete Brown's Shakespeare's Pub. It's a book that one need not read in linear fashion (from front to back), but enjoyable as a deep well into which one may sample at random.

If you are looking for information about life and the layout of London a long time ago, this is a good place to start. Loaded with interesting information.

Much of what we know about 16th-17th Century London comes from this book. Unlike other European cities, such as Venice, few 17th century surface features or buildings survive in London: due to the Great Fire of 1666, the attentions of the Luftwaffe in 1940-1 and wholesale demolition in the Victorian period. A time-travelling William Shakespeare would recognise the City of London's street plan, but little else. This book then is an indispensible resource for students and historians of the city and its occupants at this time. The original text went through many editions, many acquiring wonderful engravings of street scenes and buildings.

Not exactly what I was looking for, but interesting nevertheless. Thanks.
