About This Item

London England: John Murray. Fine/Near Fine. 2009. First Edition. Cloth. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" Tall Octavo 9781848340910 Hardcover Hardcover. First Edition. Betjeman's England. John Betjeman was that rare combination: an aesthets and a popular celebrity who, in campaiging for national treasures, became a national treasure himself. From the mid 1950s to the 1970s, though deeply out of tune with the times, he filled a media niche by questioning the mood of rapid modernisation and by berating officials, developers and the publich for embracing it. Alongside his attacks on the vulgarisation of culture, however, Betjeman produced thoughtful and intimate television films that focused the nation's gaze on a vanishing world of beauty. For years those films were all but lost. But now, in a remarkable piece of research and reconstruction, this book brings together over sixty of them in one essential volume. 304 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. Academic and Scholarly books and Modern First Editions ,and all types of Educational Reference Literature.) .
