GHASTLY GOOD TASTE. Or, a depressing story of the rise and fall of English Architecture.

Chapman & Hall Ltd. London. 1933.

Manuscript copy of the book in a neat hand, with the writer's brief notes in the margins, in a ruled notebook. (10 x 8.1 inches). Calligraphic title page, the text written in black, red and green inks. Photo negative of the fold out 'Street of taste' pull-out and typed leaf of 'The growth of good taste' tree, both loosely inserted. The corresponding page numbers from the 1933 first edition are noted in the margins, and the text contains the unchanged poem on page 119, suggesting that this was copied from a first issue of the first edition. Half beige buckram binding with marbled paper on boards. Marbled endpapers. All edges speckled with red. A fine copy of this curious but attractive item.
