London equivalent of the AIA Guide to NYC. Excellent maps. Encyclopedic and handy in size but heavy. More recent editions may have more 21st century examples.

This is a thorough treatment of London architecture, covering not only iconic landmarks like Buckingham Palace (although they're here too), but as well, buildings from all eras across Greater London. Post-WWII architecture is surprisingly well represented. The region is divided into a grid of 24 squares, each of which is illustrated with a detailed map (except outlying areas), and this grid is used for organizing the book into chapters. In all, over 900 buildings are included, each with a 2 inch x 2 inch photo and a description of three or four sentences. Floor plans are shown for each of Wren's churches and for a handful of other buildings. Appendices have maps showing 'The Great Estates,' London squares in chronological order, and 'The Inns of Court.'

This is a very comprehensive guide to the varied architecture of London. London is, of course, one of the worlds great cities, and as such, it possesses some world class architecture. London architecture is not uniform and prefectly planned out out like, for instance, Paris, but it is interesting none the less. I love Georgian, Victorian, and Edwardian architecture and London has this in abundance, sadly following the Blitz, London developers built hideous buildings, London got the worst of the so called "modern" architecture of the 50's and 60's. This guide is very well layed out and is easy to navigate. If you have any interest in this great city, then I highly recommend this book.
