1882 Three in Norway, by Two of Them
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Folding Maps, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding, Very Scarce
The very scarce first edition of James Arthur Lees and Walter J. Clutterbuck's humorous account of the travels of three men in Norway, in the late nineteenth century.
Illustrated with eight wood cut plates, and one folding colour map. Collated, complete.
Apparently the inspiration for Jerome K. Jerome's popular 'Three Men on a Boat', this humorous travelogue follows three British men as they travel by donkey and canoe through the wilds of Norway, living mostly from what they shoot and catch.
With two contemporary inscriptions, dated 1908, to the half title.
A lovely copy of the very scarce first edition of this work.
In a full cloth binding. Rebacked, retaining the original endpapers, with original boards and back strip laid down. Area of significant fading to tail of front board. Front hinge starting, with board holding firm. Inscription to half title. Internally, firmly bound. Light spotting throughout.
