By the end of the seventeenth century, the City of London was already by far the most important centre of trade and finance in the world. This financial and commercial supremacy was reflected in some of the most impressive architecture and public sculpture of the last 300 years. With over 420 photographs and over 550 pages, Philip Ward-Jackson’s book is a unique survey of one of the most architecturally exciting and diverse cities in the world.
Ward-Jackson’s guide is an amazing feat of scholarship and tenacity.

Public Sculpture of the City of London is a glorious work… thoroughly researched and well-illustrated.
Simon Jenkins, The Spectator
The detailed research and excellent photographs in this volume make one all the more eager for the subsequent London volumes.
