This remarkable book provides an irresistibly idiosyncratic portrait of London in miniature.
From its marvellously illustrated pages leaps a collection of tender, comic, shocking, sometimes alarming vignettes, a rogues' gallery of characters past and present - the famous, infamous and unfamous - who have, over the last 400 years, made this bohemian corner of the city what it is.
