BETJEMAN, John

St. Mary-Le-Strand

London: Privately printed, N.d. [1977?]

Single sheet broadside, 11.5" x 8" approx., printed on one side only. Faint mark to top edge just visible above title, very slight age yellowing to edges, otherwise a near fine copy.

First edition.

This scarce broadside was privately published from Betjeman's London home (the address of which appears at top right), and appears to have been issued as part of the fundraising campaign for the church which was launched in 1977.

Betjeman's frail and shaky signature at the foot of the poem is a facsimile - all copies we have seen are identical. The limitation is unknown but, given its very low survival rate, is presumed to be small.
