Good and Proper Materials, the Fabric of London since the Great Fire

ed. Hermione Hobhouse and Ann Saunders

Sorry, this publication is no longer for sale


What was post-fire London like?   The publication is based on papers given at a conference organised by the Survey of London which provide a wide and substantial introduction to aspects such as London Brick, made from its native clay, the ‘improvements in stucco and plaster and later the adornments of terracotta.  Structural timber and iron feature largely, as does George Augustus Sala’s modern London house.
