Full Description

4to. xi + (1) + 132pp, folding map, 165 photo ills. Publisher’s cloth (with the original dust wrapper designed by Piper, but the wrapper has suffered surface loss to its lower cover and is a little abraded at head of spine and one corner). James Stirling’s copy.

Pioneering for its date, drawing attention to striking Buckinghamshire buildings of all periods and with evocative photo ills, many based on photos taken by Piper himself.
