This is an auction for OLD LONDON BRIDGE: THE STORY OF THE LONGEST INHABITED BRIDGE IN EUROPE by Patricia Pierce. reviews:

"For over 600 years, Old London Bridge represented the pulsating heart of London. The scene of commerce and battle, romance and ceremony, it remained a vibrant focal point for twenty generations of Londoners: life and death flowed over and under it. This remarkable structure—with its drawbridge, nineteen arches, and nineteen piers—stood majestic through the centuries and was an inspiration to many who saw it. This is the story of the bridge, its inhabitants, and its extraordinary evolution—and of how it came to live on in affectionate folk memory, occupying a unique place in London’s heritage."

"FIVE STARS!!! The old London Bridge serves as a focal point for twenty generations of London history: bawds and fishmongers as well as prelates and kings. The Thames itself stars as a vicious, unpredictable bully, killing rash boatmen who tried to 'shoot' between the bridge's piers. "Many people refused point blank to go 'through the Bridge', such was the frequent loss of life..." As the bridge was built, the river was seriously and increasingly restricted. Many lives were lost (the author estimates about 200 during the thirty-three years of construction in the twelfth century) as the bridge's nineteen arches were built under and over the wide, swiftly flowing, tidal river . . . "
