What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper
A first edition copy of this collection of poems by John Betjeman, kept as new in the original publisher's bright yellow cloth binding. John Betjeman was an English poet, writer, and broadcaster, very prominent amongst the poets of the twentieth century. His writing focuses on the beauty of Britain's landscapes and architecture as well as giving a commentary on the contemporary society and its superficiality through the use of satire. A reviewer mentioned in the original fly leaves refers to Betjeman's poems as "crystalline fragments of time past preserved intact through the dissolving years." With unclipped dustwrapper.
In the original publisher's yellow cloth binding with titles in gilt to the spine. Externally, in lovely condition. Dustwrapper is very smart, with only minor shelfwear and faint age toning to the extremities internal to the wraps, not affecting the cover. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean. With unclipped dustwrapper.
