|Title||Béthune: From Edmund Blunden's Minute Book.|
|Notes||Drawing of the belfry and cathedral at Bethune by K. J. Franklin, and a photograph of the same taken in 1918. Edmund Blunden notes, in pencil, that 'We, of course, had known and at once enjoyed Bethune before any considerable destruction befell (summer, 1916)'. The book was compiled by Blunden with the intention of providing complementary photographs supporting the narrative and poems of 'Undertones of War' (1928), and was inscribed 'E.B. New Year, 1935' while Blunden was living in North Oxford, a neighbour of Graham Greene.|
