"None but a highly-gifted artist who was also a profoundly sympathetic student of the contributing factors of London's wonderful appeal to the eye and imagination could have caught so much of its potent and infinitely diversified charm, or conveyed its colour and atmosphere and the many and various conditions with such almost invariable fidelity as Mr. Marshall has done in these delicate and delightful sketches; while Miss Mitton has here given fresh and most acceptable proof of that 'extensive and peculiar' knowledge of London which rendered her so valued a coadjutor of the late Sir Walter Besant."-The World.
"Now, at last, comes a volume which gives us the whole soul and figure, so to speak, of the great fleetbearing, commercial, and warlike stream which constitutes the greatest port in the world-the port of London."-Daily Graphic.
"This charming work is in every way welcome, and every Londoner who reads it will prize it. The reproductions are exquisitely done."-Pall Mall Gazette.
"Miss Barton yields to no artist as the pictorial chronicler of London. She gives us the London we know and love, the London which is part of the workaday lives we spend in the market of the Universe." DOUGLAS SLADEN in The Queen.
"We cannot recall a collection of London pictures that catches and conveys better the spirit, the genius, and the charm of modern London with deeper subtlety and finer execution."-Literary World.

ADAM AND CHARLES BLACK, SOHO SQUARE, LONDON, W.
Sir Walter Besant's Magnum Opus Demy 4to, Cloth, Gilt Top, profusely illustrated from Contemporary Prints
IN THE EIGHTEENTH
THE TIME OF
LONDON IN THE TIME OF THE TUDORS
"To praise this book were superfluous. Sir Walter was ideally suited for the task which he set himself. He was an antiquarian, but not a Dryasdust; he had the topographical sense, but he spares us measurements; he was pleasantly discursive; if he moralised he was never tedious; he had the novelist's eye for the romantic. Above all, he loved and reverenced London. Though only a Londoner by adoption, he bestowed upon the capital a more than filial regard. Besant is the nineteeth-century Stow, and something more. . . . This remarkable volume. It is a monument of faithful and careful research."-Daily Telegraph.
"This is a handsome and valuable volume, and the several chapters give, with the broad, comprehensive touch of a master-hand, a wonderfully vivid impression of the great city the late Sir Walter knew so well in its modern aspect. -The Spectator.
"Most readable and interesting.
it is a mine in which the student alike of topography and of manners and customs may dig and dig again with the certainty of finding something new and interesting."
This is the third volume in the series of Sir Walter Besant's great Survey of London. It is similar in style to the previous volumes, "London in the Eighteenth Century" and "London in the time of the Stuarts," and, like them, is profusely illustrated with contemporary prints. In Tudor London, especially in the person of the great Queen who dominated the epoch, Sir Walter Besant has found a subject after his own heart. Elizabeth's character, her weaknesses, her greatness, her love of display, and her hold on the hearts of her subjects, are described ably and vividly.-PUBLISHERS' NOTE.
