Reprint of the out-of-print 1985 first edition with the addition of an index which was lacking from the first edition. This book represents the first bibliographic attempt to record the vast amount of literature on the River Thames written between 1580 and 1980. Annotations are grouped by topic and arranged alphabetically by author, when available. Topics include floods, bridges, fishing, frost fairs, journals and river police. For historical purposes, original spellings of titles have been retained. The section on Guides and Maps includes an appendix listing the Thames map list for the British library and additional maps from the Bodleian and Cambridge University Libraries. The index added to this edition includes authors, titles and place names.
