Full Description

8vo. 480pp, 64 photo plates, text ills. Publisher’s cloth, in dustwrapper.

First edition. Notable for Betjeman’s lengthy introduction (pp 17-82, illustrated with sketch drawings by John Piper) and for the calibre of many of the contributors, some of them obvious choices – Peter Fleetwood-Hesketh, Basil Clarke, David Verey – but others, equally distinguished, who are not usually thought of in the context of English parish churches – W.G.Hoskins, John Simmons, Michael Robbins, Georgina Battiscombe.
