Max Reinhardt, London - first edition, 1958. hardcover, 8 3/4" x 5 1/2", with dust jacket. Slight lean to spine. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, barcode etc. GOOD book in GOOD price-clipped dust jacket. Light-blue cloth-bound boards with gold type to spine, illustrated frontispiece ['New London Bridge' 1833], over 80 b&w photographs taken by author, map over two pages [Thames, Chelsea-Greenwich, 1827], select bibliography, index. London's riverside is fascinating in spite of its seedy squalor, and Eric de Mare explores its length with knowledge and a tolerant eye. While the fabric of the Thames has changed time and again through the centuries, it is when the black hulk floats upstream and the lights begin to flicker across the oily water, that the river looks its best. The river is woven into the texture of London's daily life; to explore the river then, is to explore London.
