Betjeman ( Discontinued Edition )


Hardback, not price clipped, no inscriptions, illustrated. This is the first edition, first printing containing the text of the hoax letter on pages 154/155 the first letters of each line of which spell out a very uncomplimentary message to A.N. Wilson and which was removed from all subsequent editions! Excellent condition copy with only slight rubbing to wrapper and no creasing or fading to spine. Clean and Bright internally, appears almost unread. Will attract additional postage outside the UK.
