Town and Countryside: Some Aspects of Urban and Rural Development

£19.99

Product description

Town and Countryside: Some Aspects of Urban and Rural Development

Thomas Sharp

Oxford University Press, London, 1932.

Hardback; 185 x 265 mm; red boards with gold titles on spine and front cover; 227 pages. No dust jacket. Thirty-three diagrams and 48 plates.

The book is an ex-library copy in fair condition. The binding is sound though the book is very slightly cocked. The covers are a little grubby, the spine more so, with some wear to the spine. Fore and bottom edges of the leaves irregularly cut and tanned. The front paste-down endpaper has a brief annotation in ink, and a library pocket and information card attached by a strip of discoloured sellotape that has marked the endpapers slightly. The recto of the front free endpaper has pencil annotations partially hidden by a pasted in library “date of return” label. Some tanning internally, particularly the front and back matter. Some marks internally here and there.

Thomas Sharp (1901–1978) was an English urban planner and writer. Town and Countryside established him as a formidable polemicist. He challenged the popular garden city movement, which sought to unite town and country, by insisting on their separate individual qualities.
