Bedford Park Festival Committee, London. 1968.
SIGNED BY BETJEMAN, beneath a printed poem on the title page. 28pp, plus printed card wraps. The title page states 'A message from our patron. This doggerel based on the 'Ballad of Bedford park' is my greeting to you all for the 1968 festival.'. The 3 verse poem starts; 'The dogs do bark in Bedford park, The Festival to praise. There's not a flaw in Norman Shaw; The sunflower gardens blaze'. Betjeman has signed in black ink below the poem. Printed wraps a bit rubbed and toned but overall very good. -- Peterson B95.
