This is a wonderful resource for anybody researching life in late C16th / early C17th London.
The book is an easy read and brings a new knowledge of the streets within the City of London where years ago I had once worked. It's one of those books that you can dip into at any time for the sheer quirky pleasure of it - but it's also a superb historical document in its own right.
The introduction by Antonia Fraser in this edition is a fascinating essay.
Now, other people come to work & walk along streets full of historical association which are named in this book. Tourists choose to visit & admire the few remaining buildings, streets and alley ways of that same Elizabethan London. You would value the history even more if you read this book with its wonderful details.
