Second impression. A wonderful collection of photographs of London by night. The city is captured by the medium of the camera, and this work illustrates a variety of sights, from parks and palaces to unknown side-streets and corners. 'The past, the present and the promise of that to come. London's beauty, her fascination, her ageless magic portrayed for all time in this memorable volume' (front flap).
