About the Book

Authors Barbara Rosen and Wolfgang Zuckermann created a unique volume combining London social and architectural history, in exploring the story of how the former horse stables known as "mews," became quiet and beautiful town homes on charming byways of a great city. Extraordinary in this book is that it combines the practical value of walking tours presenting rich history, with in-depth research and a rare photographic record. Indeed, at the time the book was published it received favorable attention from the BBC, as well as the Guide Book of the Year Award from the London Tourist Board. The authors are known in their own right - Mr. Zuckermann for being the creator of the Zuckermann Harpsichord Kit, and Ms Rosen for her writing and work as an arts administrator, including her time spent at the British Embassy in Washington DC in cultural affairs. The Mews of London probably deserves a reprinting, because the architecture into which it provides such insight, hasn't gone anywhere. Sadly the publisher, the prestigious Webb & Bower (of The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady fame), no longer exists, and the original plates for the book, as we are to understand, have been lost. Recommended reading if you are interested in London history, and if you can find a copy.
