Photographs by Evelyn Hofer. Text by V.S. Pritchett. Harcourt, Brace & World. New York, 1962. First American Edition. Quarto; 111 black and white and 18 color gravure plates; gilt lettering on spine; dustjacket.

Eveleyn Hofer's beautiful, respectful, large-format photographs are the perfect counterpoint to Pritchett's prose. It's interesting to note that the book's numbering scheme includes Pritchett's text pages consectively numbered, while ignoring Hofer's full-page gravure plates. The book then appears to have only 111 pages when in reality it has over 220.

From the dustjacket flap: "London is revealed to the mind, heart, and the eye with eloquence and character in this handsome volumeā€”a collaboration of text by V.S. Pritchett, one of England's most brilliant writers, and photographs by Evelyn Hofer, whose camera artistry is internationally respected."

Some light foxing; previous owner's name in neat script on first page; some light browning of plates due to age; a few small stains on front dustjacket; some light wear to cover edges; otherwise a beautiful, tight copy in Fine dustjacket contained in a clear library jacket.
