Summoned By Bells
Summoned by Bells
London: John Murray, 1960.
A near perfect copy of the chatty poems about his school days that made Betjeman famous and eventually Poet Laureate.
His candor about the dark side of a private school education, along with the joys of intellectual awakening, make a uniquely honest record of a class-conscious society.
Hardcover with excellent, clipped jacket.
Book is fine, with small owner dedication.
