SANDWITH, Francis. London by Night. A Century of Photographs. London: Chatto & Windus, [1935].

Royal 8vo., blue publisher's boards, lettered in black to upper cover and along spine, in the original unclipped dustwrapper (5s. Net) with attached black and white photograph to upper panel; pp. [xii], 100; some light bumping and toning to edges of cloth; the wrapper with a few very small nicks and creases, predominently to the spine and upper-edge; near-fine.
First edition, the 100 plates taken from photographs and No. 4 in the 'Life & Art in Photograph' series.
The photographs paint a particularly eerie view of the UK's capital city. Some of the images depict very romantic or iconic views, while others show more realistic impressions; strings of washing hanging over a lamp-lit street, rain-washed streets, a bin lying on its side in Soho, etc.
