    Originally published in two volumes, The Victorian City was a major landmark, particularly in the study of the social and intellectual attitudes of Victorian society to the challenge of urbanization. Unique in its many-sided approach to the total phenomenon of the city, this set deals on many levels with the city environment and includes:
    * discussion of the city's growth, fabric, institutions, health, poverty, politics, religion, diversions
    * analysis of the ways in which artists, photographers and ordinary people responded to these new landscapes
    * rich illustrations from contemporary photographs, lantern slides, magazine illustrations, paintings and other material, much of which was published here for the first time.
    The books will appeal to a very wide general audience and command the attention of a wide range of scholars - historians, literary and art historians, social scientists, and architects and town planners.
    This set is also available in two volumes:
    * Volume One: 0-415-19323-0: 428pp: £125.00
    * Volume Two: 0-415-19324-9: 532pp: £125.00
