The companion volume to Bill Brandt's 'Camera in London', published by Focal Press a year earlier in the series 'Masters of the Camera'. This series provided a good survey of the photographers' careers to date and these volumes are invaluable today for their inclusion of the 'technical data' so rarely encouraged in the more self-consciously arty photobook that followed in later years and discouraged any discussion of the technical elements of the photographic image.
First edition. 8vo., 95 pp, with black & white photographs throughout; 7 sections - The Grand Sights, Side Glimpse, Famous Shows, Nights Out, Conversation Pieces, Onlookers and The World Goes On - followed by Technical Data, ownership signature in ink on front free end; white paper on boards, tear at head of spine, binding a little rubbed and discoloured at edges but interior bright and clean; dust-jacket with some creasing, taped tears and minor losses
Author Brassai (Gyula Halász, 1899–1984)
