First Faber edition; 8vo; original ring bound cloth boards and dust jacket; eight plates and numerous black and white photographs; two full-page coloured maps and pictorial end papers. Originally published by Architectural Press in 1935, this is one of the first ten titles in this series edited by John Betjeman. The Gazetteer was largely compiled by Edith Olivier.and Lord Bolingbroke supplied the nature notes. The advertisement for Shell on the Road was by Edward Bawden. A near fine copy, with the bottom of the spine bumped. The very scarce dust jacket is very good, bottom of the spine bumped and some wear to the extremities. A lovely copy very scare in this condition.
