Excerpt from The Gentleman's Magazine Library, Vol. 16: Being a Classified Collection of the Chief Contents of the Gentleman's Magazine From 1731 to 1868; English Topography; London Vol; II His volume contains the concluding portion of the reprint relating to the City of London, and that portion of the modern County of London which was formerly in the County of Middlesex. The great interest of the collection lies in the contem porary records rather than the historical notes. The history of the Gentleman's Magazine period and its contributors is not always accurate, and deductions drawn from it are not always reasonable. But the observations of a contemporary upon the facts he is careful to note, even if that observation is clouded by bias or by ignorance in many ways, will allow the modern inquirer to thread his way to the facts which no other kind of material will allow. Every article is printed as in the original, and the notes and references to plates are retained for the use of students who wish to pursue any subject further. [there will be a third volume to com.
