Edwin Hodder : Cities of the World

'…I got it the same year as I got “The Cities of the World” the most remarkable point about which, I have always thought, is the fact that it omits to mention London, tho generally considered greatest city of this world. The author cannot shield the omission under the plea that he thought London too great to be reckoned of this world, for if ever there were a city of the earth, earthy, it is the English metropolis.'
