This copy has been signed by both the author, Felix Barker, and the photographer, John Gay, to the half-title page.
Highgate Cemetery is one of the greatest cemeteries in the world but in many ways it is also one of the most secret. Containing some of the most celebrated—and often most eccentric—funerary architecture to be found anywhere, it has also, as nature has gradually taken it over, become a wild-life reserve near the centre of London. Felix Barker contributes a history of the cemetery and John Gay's photographs offer a unique pictorial record which convey the spirit of the place.
Also included are a few postcards of John Gay's photographs, a flyer for the book, and two maps of the cemetery.
Good condition. There is a little creasing to the corners and some tanning to the page edges but otherwise a sound copy.
