Ghastly Good Taste
Anthony Blond, London,1970.
First edition thus.
First issued in 1933, this diatribe against the rise and fall of good taste in architecture is here revised, with a pull-out illustration of architectural styles that extends to nine feet.
Betjeman is very funny about his own youthful prejudices, but underneath is a grim warning about the ugliness of the modern age, which of course, is now only too true (and too late).
An excellent example of a great book, with slight wear to jacket.
