    A compilation of beginnings and endings, openings and events, and an alarming number of crimes and executions, this compilation of London days begins on 1 January 1660, when Samuel Pepys started his diary, and proceeds through the year, with three or four entries for every day until 31 December 1853, when a life-sized model of an iguanodon, one of many dinosaurs manufactured by Waterhouse Hawkins of the Crystal Palace Co., was installed in Sydenham Park. No jacket.
