"The second part - virtually a book in itself - is a lively gazetteer of the places in contemporary Middlesex, from Action to Yiewsley. The whole work is fully indexed and referenced, and includes tables of population and a detailed bibliography (both updated for this edition), line maps, diagrams and 48 pages of superb photographs."--BOOK JACKET." ;
