"Through contemporary travel accounts, diaries, and correspondence, as well as maps, architectural drawings, paintings, and prints - many previously unpublished - Upton investigates not only how buildings were designed, streets were laid out, and urban space was put to use, but also why. He offers original insights into the way cities were imagined, and an extensive selection of illustrations re-creates the various features of the urban landscape in the nineteenth century."--Jacket." ;
