Summary
"The period between the American and French Wars and the emergence of Britain as a mid-Victorian imperial power is one of the most fascinating in British history. It was a time when the foundations were laid for much later wealth and power, a dynamic era of growth and reform that decisively shaped the destiny of the country, and of London, the capital."--BOOK JACKET. "This sumptuously illustrated book is the first comprehensive study of London during this period of cultural, artistic, philosophical, scientific, and technological growth. Leading authorities in history, art, and literature explain the multifaceted aspects of this development. Their essays are supported by both reproductions and detailed descriptions of material evidence that range from artistic masterpieces through scientific and technological wonders of the age to more general historical and philosophical material."--BOOK JACKET. "It is published to coincide with a major exhibition to be held at the Villa Hugel, Essen, Germany, for which it will also serve as the catalogue."--BOOK JACKET
