In good condition here is a vintage first edition hardback copy of London Overlooked by Geoffrey Fletcher. Published in 1964 by Hutchinson of London. In the original dust jacket which reads:

"Geoffrey Fletcher is an artist in love with his subject. The subject is London, which he has spent years exploring, sketchbook in hand, to capture every curious, changing, intimate detail of its life. His is the London overlooked by the glossy guidebooks, overlooked indeed by many Londoners, whose untrained eyes miss the oddities and off-beat beauties which still survive the ravages of time and the demolition gangs.
The vanishing glories of the Victorian music halls, Bloomsbury squares, Hampstead and Hoxton, shop-fronts and cemeteries...Geoffrey Fletcher describes them all in a witty, informed text which perfectly complements his brilliant sketches."

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

Contents: The Magic of the Halls; Bloomsbury: Scenes That Are Brightest; London Villages; London Peculiar; The Joys of the Streets; Shops, Alleys and Markets; Gothic and Graveyards.

The dust wrapper is also in top order with just a little tanning to the spine and along the edges. It 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 City Sights.

Your vintage copy of London Overlooked will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon* and will be sent well packaged. I am always happy to add a gift card with a message to the parcel.

H 28.5 cm x W 21 cm, 128 pages, 0.68 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. (There are just a very few countries which I am unable to ship to).

* If you would prefer for your book not to be decoratively wrapped but sent simply in the protective packaging please add a note to the order.
