A complete run up to 1977 of the monumental survey carried out by the London County council (later GLC), to record all the historic buildings and other significant historic architectural memorials in Greater London in order to provide a register. Probably the greatest work of its kind ever commissioned. The work was arranged according to the traditional parishes of London and volumes were published as they were ready. The first volume is Bromley-by Bow, the final publication is The Grosvenor Estate in Mayfair. The first editor was C. R. Ashbee.
