by Sydney R. Jones
Publisher: The Studio
Sydney R. Jones, the topographical draftsman, who has been dscribed by the Canaletto of the twentieth-century London, needs no introduction to "Studio" intimates. His earlier works hold an honoured place in a long line of distinguished publications treasured in the libraries of the world. His skill as an architectural draftsman earned for him the coveted honour of recording the Coronation of the King and Queen.
For many years past he has devoted his leisure to a recording of London as it was known only to its intimates; its vistas, architectural gems and curiosities linking it with its great historic past; and he has built up a collection which must be almost unique.
In the pursuit of his hobby he has acquired a wealth of London lore, and has met many London celebrities, characters and types. In this book he relates the story of London, giving a picture of it as it was at the outbreak of war, with its crowded skylines, historic buildings and intimate details, interwoven with his memories and illustrated by reproductions of a great many of his drawings and etchings.
The destruction of so many London landmarks assures this work historic importance, and the general reader will turn to it it as a reminder of much that he formerly held dear.
