LONDON 4 NORTH is the latest in the much acclaimed six-volume London series of Pevsner's architectural guides. It covers the boroughs of Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Islington, Hackney and Haringey, from the formal Georgian squares of Bloomsbury, through Victorian suburbs and railway stations, to the attractive hill towns of Hampstead and Highgate, and twentieth century developments beyond. Each area has an historical introduction followed by a comprehensive gazetteer with succinct accounts of the varied buildings of all periods that give character to London's many distinctive neighbourhoods. Numerous maps and detailed indexes makes this authoritative book invaluable as both a guide and a work of reference.
