(viii), 61, (1) pp. Publisher's cream cloth, black lettered to the spine, dust jacket, inscribed by the editor De Beer to the front free endpaper with an autograph letter signed by him loosely inserted bearing the same date (31 March 1959).

Reproducing Evelyn's plan for the rebuilding of London after the Great Fire - "Londinium Redivivum, or London Restored", taken from the Guildhall's copy. In the letter De Beer apologises for the tardiness of his reply and writes of the death of an H.M.
