Sir John Summerson presents a picture of the architectural rebirth that transformed the appearance of London between 1714 and 1830. Considering a wide range of buildings, from those of Adam and Nash to the work of cavalier speculators and reformist legislators, Summerson combines analysis of great and famous structures - Westminister Bridge, the Bank of England and the Horseguards - with a detailed description of the historical circumstances out of which they arose.
