In good condition here is a vintage first edition hardback copy of City Sights - A City of London Portfolio by Geoffrey Fletcher. Published in 1963 by Hutchinson of London. In the original dust jacket which reads:

"The skill and enthusiasm with which these forty views of the City of London are drawn are matched by the wit and perception of the artist's commentaries."

Inside the pages are clean and tightly bound with no writing or inscriptions. There is some tanning and spotting to the closed outside edges.

The Drawings: Fleet Street; Victorian Renaissance-Attenborough's Fleet Street; St John's Wapping; Jubilee Fountain, St. Giles Cripplegate; Island Lavatory, St John's Street; The City Club, Old Broad Street; The Baltic Saloon; Churchyard of All-Hallows-the-Less, Thames Street; St Michael, Cornhill; Hoop and Grapes, Aldgate; Holborn Viaduct; The Shop, Hoare's Bank; Nichols Square Gothic; Gent's Outfitters, Aldgate; Committee Room, Guildhall Library; Lavatory Near Guildhall; Eighteenth Century Doorway, Whitbread's Brewery; Early Nineteenth Century Shop, Eastcheap; Brick Lane; Paul's Wharf in Fog; Lavatory Attendant in the City; St. Alban, Wood Street; Wellclose Square, Stepney; Frozen Fountain in the Postman's Park; Fournier Street, Spitalfields, The Mansion House; The Stumps of Water Lane; Gothic Warehouse, Thames Street; The Jamaica Wine House, St. Michael's Alley; City Road Sweepers; St. Anne and St. Agnes; Eighteenth Century Doorways, Lawrence Poutney Hill; Demolition of the Coal Exchange; St. Ann's Churchyard, Blackfriars; St. Lawrence Jewry; The Leadenhall Market; Wine Office Court; St. John's Gardens, Clerkenwell; St. Nicholas Cole Abbey; Tower Bridge.

The dust wrapper has one main condition point to note which is a coffee ring mark and splash stain in the bottom front corner next to the spine (see photos 1 and 2). Otherwise in top order with just some mild scuffing to the top edge and some light tanning to the spine. It has been price-clipped and has now been protected for the future by the addition of a removable plastic sleeve.

At time of writing I have two other London titles by Geoffrey Fletcher in stock: The London Nobody Knows and London Overlooked.
