A good copy, in its original dust wrapper, also in good condition, of this pioneering architectural guide book. The editors, Betjeman and Piper, draw attention to striking Buckinghamshire buildings of all periods and many of the book’s evocative photo illustrations are based on photos taken by Piper himself.
