1906 Under the Syrian Sun: The Lebanon, Baalbek, Galilee, and Judaea
What Our Customers Say...
Colour Plates, First Edition, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding
A first edition, with colour plate frontispiece to each volume, and numerous further colour and black and white plates.
The colourful plates of these volumes are the work of Stanley Inchbold, a relation of the author, known for his town and landscape paintings.
The author of this work, A. C. Inchbold, was more frequently a novelist than travelogue writer, publishing eight novels between 1899 and 1920. Here, she applies her elegant prose to a descriptive, and at times poetic, first person account of his travels in Syria and nearby regions.
With a publisher's advertisement to the rear of volume I.
To rear pastedown of both volumes is the label for 'The Times Bookclub'.
In the publisher's original cloth binding. Bumped to extremities and spine heads and tails. Light marks to boards. Front hinges of both volumes tender but firm. Rear hinge of volume II reinforced with tape. Rear hinge of volume I tender but firm. Book club label to rear pastedown of both volumes. Internally, firmly bound. Scattered foxing throughout, as is common to this work.
