    Story of a London Night in Sixty-Four Photographs. Introduced by James Bone.
    First edition, first impression. There is some speculation that the scarcity of this publication is in part due to enemy action; the publisher was badly hit by the fire in Paternoster Row, and copies of this delicate and influential work are uncommon. Learn More

  4. The English at Home.

    The English at Home.

    Introduced by Raymond Mortimer.
    First edition, first impression. This marvellous photographer's first book contrasting the English classes: "he juxtaposed images of fur-clad Mayfair gentry with those of servants downstairs. It was a pictorial essay on the gap between the rich and the poor, but it was also a fond study of the way people take possession of their environments, presented by a German exile with a faked English identity and an obsession with what people look like at home" (Harris, Modern Romantics, p.
