Previous owner's bookplate inside front cover. In a very good unclipped dust jacket with two short tears along the bottom of the front cover, and minor chipping to the corners.


Sir John Betjeman takes an unashamedly nostalgic journey through his earliest memories in this autobiography. Sunny memories of family holidays in Cornwall contrast with the 'shivering doom' of Marlborough College and his ultimately frustrating studies at Oxford.
