A book of facts and about London, what else?
An interesting book to dip into but, because of its list format, necessarilly light on information in some cases. An entertaining way to pass the time, with some truly remarkable facts hidden amongst the more well known.
buffo libro di liste sulla città di londra - per chi la conosce già e ha voglia di aneddoti curiosi e stralci di storia. molto divertente.
