Information
First edition, first print hardback of BERYL COOK'S LONDON by Beryl Cook and published by John Murray (Publishers) Ltd, London in 1988. Signed by Beryl Cook on the title page.

The book is in near fine condition (cream cloth boards with gold lettering to spine) with no more than very light wear to the dust jacket, which is not price clipped (very slight bumping to two corners). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no other inscriptions. There is the very lightest age toning here and there.

Beryl Cook's London is a rather special place. It is not quite the London of the sightseeing tours... though she does guide us round the Zoo, and later releases one of its tigers into Kew Gardens. Nor just London the shopping metropolis, though we witness the pandemonium of the sales and linger over lingerie in Soho.


Soho indeed takes up a fairly large area of Beryl Cook's London: the jaded doorkeeper at the bed show; the piano bar where anyone who likes can get up and sing. And who can this be, dressed up as a bumble-bee and performing at Madam Jo-Jo's, accompanied by a chorus of flowers?

She may have had a night on the tiles, but this does not prevent Beryl from making an early start every morning, whether to Smithfield or to Bermondsey Market, displaying some of the multitude of junk she has collected over many years. Much in need of a restorative, she drops into a nearby pub, and, to her great surprise, 'a lovely girl suddenly appears and, dancing to music, peels of most of her clothes'.

Beryl has a knack of attracting such surprises, and it is our good fortune that she very kindly shares them with us.

64 pages (unpaginated), illustrated with examples of Beryl's work
