Book Condition: Very Good


Cardstock wraps, illus. in red and blue with the image of an aeroplane and the Tower of London by Hicks. Undated, ca. 1920s, certainly pre-WW2; appears to have been published in various forms from about 1924 (the likely issue of our copy) into the '30s, eventually numbering up to 100 pp. Mildly rubbed joints and edges, firm binding. Former owner's name stamps on pp. 1 and 3. 80 pp., illus. w/ b&w aerial photographs of London, also many ads, including full-page color. An additional photograph not original to issue has been tipped in at p. 48, and about a dozen ad pages show ghosting (darkening) where other photos had been taped in (tape now darkened/dried, these photos laid in at rear); several are still attached. A scarce vintage promotional item, with many fascinating views.
