Robert Hale, London, 1951, first edition. 
268 pp, 8vo (8 9/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w plates, fold-out map at rear. "The area which is the subject of this book is one of great variety and contrast. From Highgate Woods and Hampstead Heath the land slopes away to busy and conge sted Camden Town; in Somers Town vast building schemes are carried out beside quiet old squares; historic houses stand near to new and prosperous residential quarters. There is an astonishing variety of institutions, from the Zoo and Holl o w a y a n d P entonville prisons to University colleges and other places of learning and research, from the Caledonian Market to the ancient foundation of Queen Matilda. Over the whole scene hangs the atmosphere both of accomplished and pending c ha ng e. T he g r ea t railway companies, four of whose termini profoundly affect the life of parts of the area, are nationalised; the well-run private house, once the hall mark of the Northern Heights, is giving way to blocks of flats. Mr Co lvi lle de scr i bes th is ch ang ing scene and its implications in an objective and impartial manner. Although the time is the present, the past is used to explain developments and tendancies, and a clear picture of an area in transition appears ." Ligh t br owni ng to endp ape rs, sli ght bowing to rear board, corner crease and tiny hinge tear (archivally taped) on folding map, very light edge wear, small wrinkle across lower spine, minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, minor foxing ma rks on t op of text blo ck. Dust jac ket has m oderate edge wear/wrinkling along with small chips and tears - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, very light rubbing on rear panel. Very Good/Good+
