Sudek’s most famous book, this volume collects 284 beautiful panoramic views of Prague. “No photographer, save possibly Atget, was so devoted to the task of portraying a city, and with such stunning results, as Sudek” (Sawyer, Creative Camera, No. 190, April 1980).

Oblong quarto (350 x 220 mm). Original cream cloth, illustration to covers and titles to spine in black, top edge black, others trimmed. With the dust jacket. Illustrated with 284 monochrome panoramic photographs. Boards very mildly soiled. Otherwise a fine copy in a gently toned jacket with slightly nicked extremities, a few small chips to spine ends and folds, and a couple of minor holes to rear panel.
