London. Thames & Hudson. 2007. First edition. Signed by 21 of the contributing photographers in various inks on the half-title. Oatmeal cloth-bound boards, no dust jacket [as issued], in original cardboard shipping carton. 568 pages. 413 photographs in colour and duotone. 400 x 330mm (15 x 13"). kg. 9780500543429. English. Fine; an excellent copy, there is some rubbing and loss to the black lettering on the cloth boards but this occurs on most copies we have seen and appears to be a printing error; black marker pen writing occurs in two places on the cardboard shipping carton.
