Abstract

This chapter traces the prevalence of discourses of the 'Georgian' in topographical literature and prints prior to the publication of John Summerson's 'Georgian London' (1945). It shows that from the late nineteenth century onwards there had been a strong interest in the eighteenth-century city and that its 'rediscovery' in the 1930s with the founding of the Georgian Group (1937) in fact came out of a longer-established culture.
