Book Description

An exceptionally good copy of the first reprint (April 1935 ) of the very first of the Shell Guides ; Edited, of course , by John Betjeman. Unusually there is only very minimum loosening at the top and bottom of the wire spiral binding. The front cover shows a faint mark where presumably an old price sticker has been removed ; there is a 2/6 sticker inside the front cover. Altogether a lovely collectable copy with all the idiosyncrasies one would expect from John Betjeman.
