A new Life in London

Very glad to be able to write that I’ve recently co-signed a contract with Oxford University Press to produce the first modern affordable edition of Pierce Egan’s Life in London (previously mapped for this site) for Oxford World’s Classics. I’ve be working on this with John Gardner, Simon Kövesi and David Stewart for the past couple of years, and we’re very glad the OUP will be able to publish a version at a price that will make the book available again to general readers and for university teaching.
