Handbook to The Environs of London - James Thorne (1983) - facsimile of 1876 edition
 
James Thorne, FSA, "Handbook to the Environs of London, containing an account of every town and village and of all places of interest within a circle of twenty miles round London. With 35 engravings" (originally published in 1876, in two volumes without illustrations; this edition Godfrey Cave Associates Ltd., 1983; ISBN 0-906223-90-3). Hardback book (red cloth-effect boards, gilt titles to spine) with original dustwrapper, 794pp plus title pages, preface and illustrations (reproduced from old engravings), measuring approximately 14.6 x 22.3 x 5.5cm (5.75 x 8.8 x 2.15in). "The Handbook of the Environs of London contains an account - written in every instance from personal examination and inquiry - of every town and village, and all places of historical, antiquarian, and artistic interest, within a circuit of twenty miles round London, and of the more important places lying four or five miles beyond that boundary. ... The district thus marked out is probably unrivalled in scenes of historical interest and personal and literary associations."
