There has been no study of Somerset House since that by R.W Needham & A. Webster in 1912.  After much research, Simon Thurley’s 2009 reappraisal includes a reproduction of every known depiction of the mansion, as well as specially prepared ground plans and reconstructions – a visual archive of great value both to the academic and those with a general interest in London.
