Legendary Artist Gustave Dorè spent years creating this visual masterpiece depicting the broad spectrum of humanity that inhabited Victorian Era London. In the mid 19th century, Journalist Blanchard Jerrold and Gustave Dorè set out on a journey to document the people and culture of London. Originally printed in 1872, this Retro Restored Special Edition includes: -The original type font -Classic page layouts -Crisp digitally re-scanned and enhanced images -More than 170 engravings -8 1/2" x 11" printing -Bold new cover design -Introduction Master artist Gustave Dorè (1832-1883), known for the lavish illustrations in Dante's Inferno, Paradise Lost, and Don Quixote, depicted London, England, in his charismatic and detailed way that nobody else could. His masterful engravings shed light on the dimly-lit back alleys, seedy docks, and market districts made famous by Charles Dicken's novels, Sherlock Holmes, and countless period dramas. Blanchard's writing compliments Dorè's artwork to give readers a contemporary guide through the city's underbelly, to the parks, and past some of its most famous locales such as Parliament and St. John's Cathedral. Fans of highly detailed artwork, graphic novels, and comic strips will find themselves lost for hours in Dorè's meticulous drawings of bustling city streets and river scenes. His playful renderings of London's most interesting characters feel remarkably modern and timelessly fascinating for readers into the 21st-century and beyond.

In 1872 Gustave Dore published London: A Pilgrimage, in which he captured, often from memory, the life of the world's greatest city. His London was a city of contrasts: of light and shadow, a vital, bustling metropolis which encompassed the fashionable Ladies' Mile in Hyde Park and the appalling poverty of the East End rookeries.

Gustave Doré and the Modern Biblical Imagination explores the role of biblical imagery in modernity through the lens of Gustave Doré (1832-83), whose work is among the most reproduced and adapted scriptural imagery in the history of Judeo-Christianity. First published in France in late 1865, Doré's Bible illustrations received widespread critical acclaim among both religious and lay audiences, and the next several decades saw unprecedented dissemination of the images on an international scale. In 1868, the Doré Gallery opened in London, featuring monumental religious paintings that drew 2.5 million visitors over the course of a quarter-century; when the gallery's holdings travelled to the United States in 1892, exhibitions at venues like the Art Institute of Chicago drew record crowds. The United States saw the most creative appropriations of Doré's images among a plethora of media, from prayer cards and magic lantern slides to massive stained-glass windows and the spectacular epic films of Cecile B. DeMille. This book repositions biblical imagery at the center of modernity, an era that has often been defined through a process of secularization, and argues that Doré's biblical imagery negotiated the challenges of visualizing the Bible for modern audiences in both sacred and secular contexts. A set of texts whose veracity and authority were under unprecedented scrutiny in this period, the Bible was at the center of a range of historical, theological, and cultural debates. Gustave Doré is at the nexus of these narratives, as his work established the most pervasive visual language for biblical imagery in the past two and a half centuries, and constitutes the means by which the Bible has persistently been translated visually.

In the 1880s, fashionable Londoners left their elegant homes and clubs in Mayfair and Belgravia and crowded into omnibuses bound for midnight tours of the slums of East London. A new word burst into popular usage to describe these descents into the precincts of poverty to see how the poor lived: slumming. In this captivating book, Seth Koven paints a vivid portrait of the practitioners of slumming and their world: who they were, why they went, what they claimed to have found, how it changed them, and how slumming, in turn, powerfully shaped both Victorian and twentieth-century understandings of poverty and social welfare, gender relations, and sexuality. The slums of late-Victorian London became synonymous with all that was wrong with industrial capitalist society. But for philanthropic men and women eager to free themselves from the starched conventions of bourgeois respectability and domesticity, slums were also places of personal liberation and experimentation. Slumming allowed them to act on their irresistible "attraction of repulsion" for the poor and permitted them, with society's approval, to get dirty and express their own "dirty" desires for intimacy with slum dwellers and, sometimes, with one another. Slumming elucidates the histories of a wide range of preoccupations about poverty and urban life, altruism and sexuality that remain central in Anglo-American culture, including the ethics of undercover investigative reporting, the connections between cross-class sympathy and same-sex desire, and the intermingling of the wish to rescue the poor with the impulse to eroticize and sexually exploit them. By revealing the extent to which politics and erotics, social and sexual categories overflowed their boundaries and transformed one another, Koven recaptures the ethical dilemmas that men and women confronted--and continue to confront--in trying to "love thy neighbor as thyself."
