Price: £50.00

Quantity: 1 available


Plain blk boards; a little marked and slightly faded; corners slightly bumped, but not broken; binding tight; gilt titling, bright. Contemporary binding - probably originally issued in wrappers; binder's tick on front pastedown. B/w illustrations + plates. Bookplate on front pastedown; author's inscription on title page. In our own time artist-chroniclers such as the late Goffrey Fletcher have provided an important record of a London that was vanishing even as they recorded it, and it's sobering to consider that a century-and-a-half ago concerned Londoners were doing exactly the same thing. A fascinating textual and visual record of some of the Capital's sights that are no longer even a folk-memory. ; 4to (7 1/2" x 11"); 25 + XX b/w plates pages
