About this Item: His Majesty's Stationary Office, 1945. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Book has minor wear to the edges and corners with light rubbing and smudging to the covers. A long, very mellow indentation can be found rubbing the length of the back cover. The map opposite page 30 has an inch long tear near the binding, the one on the 63 has a half inch closed tear, while the one on page 79 is quite tiny. Finally on page 110 the map has an arching 2 inch closed tear. Aside from the items listed, this is a very good copy that remains well-bound with bright pages that are crisp and unmarked. All maps are present and accounted for, even the ones in the back sleeve. Due to the object's size, overseas shipping will cost extra. Seller Inventory # 950622

About this Item: 1945. ABERCROMBIE, Patrick. Greater London Plan 1944. A Report prepared on behalf of the Standing Committee on London Regional Planning at the Request of the Minister of Town and Country Planning. X, 220, [1] pp. Illustrated with 89 photographs & 33 illustrations from drawings, diagrams, & maps (some in colour, 9 folding) plus a large folding master plan in 2 sheets inserted in envelope at rear. Folio, bound in publisher's cloth and dustwrapper. London: His Majesty's Stationery Office, 1945. "Following World War II, London was presented with an opportunity to amend the perceived failings of unplanned and haphazard development that had occurred as a result of rapid industrialization in the nineteenth century. During the Second World War, the blitz had destroyed large urban areas throughout the entire county of London, but particularly the central core. Over 50,000 inner London homes were completely destroyed, while more than 2 million dwellings experienced some form of bomb damage. This presented the London City Council with a unique chance to plan and rebuild vacant tracts of the city on a scale not seen since the Great Fire of London. Although the report was comprehensive in attempting to solve the issues facing London at the time, its implementation was not fully realized. The economic climate in Britain during the post war era simply did not allow for major infrastructure development on the scale that Abercrombie had suggested." Dust jacket worn, else fine.
