First edition, first printing, hardback in dustwrapper. 22 × 14.5cm, 240pp. Large fold-out map in rear pocket. From the dustwrapper, "The suburb, the characteristic habitat nowadays of millions, has almost no written past. This book is a contribution towards filling this gap. It sets out to elucidate the whole process of suburban growth by means of a detailed case-study based on an exceptionally wide range of sources. Its pages trace the step taken to change fields into streets and to make the suburb part of the organism of the city. 'Here at Camberwell,' writes Sir John Summerson, 'we can see the whole thing happening, understand the mechanics. The suburban sprawl is no longer a figure of speech; it becomes something actual. This is important. The actuality of things forgotten (especially, perhaps, things despised) in the recent past, the truth under the surface of the late assumptions, the seeing for the first time as historic what has only lately been forgotten as contemporary, lies near the roots of creative thought and the formation of new attitudes.' Condition: The book itself is in good condition with clean pages and secure binding. The frontispiece photo illustration is becoming detached. The dustwrapper has not been price-clipped and is in a protective sleeve but suffers a few small creases and chips to the edges. N° de ref. de la librería
