What Our Customers Say...

Description

Leather Binding

This selection are intended to be a companion to the traveller, to give one a variety of matters to read whilst on a journey. The preface states 'This little book aims at nothing but providing companionship on the road for city-dwellers who make holiday, It has no claims to completeness of any kind'. It provides 'lazy reading for the time to rest, with perhaps a phrase or two for the feet to step to and the mind to brood on when the rest is over.' Rebound in a lovely quarter morocco binding. Contains passages by many well known authors such as Shakespeare and Tennyson and Byron. Compiled by E.V Lucas, an essayist, poet and short story writer. Lucas was a large contributor for the magazine Punch and worked for them from 1904 to his death.
