What Our Customers Say...

Description

Publishers' Original Binding, Signed, With Dustwrapper

The sixth impression, first published in 1950.

Bound in the publisher's original cloth, with the original, unclipped dust wrapper.

Signed by the author, inscribed to Robert Carter, with greetings from Patrick Leigh Fermor, with the inscription surrounded by a cloud bubble, as is typical with Fermor's inscriptions.

Patrick Leigh Fermor was an English author, scholar and soldier, known as one of Britain's greatest travel writers.

In this particular work Fermor explores the lesser-known islands of the Caribbean, with his characteristic charm, humour and inquisitive nature highlighted during his travels.  

Illustrated with a frontispiece and photographs by A. Costa and a sketch-map of the Caribbean Islands by H. W. Hawes.

With a sketch by S. Gonzales Cortez loosely inserted.

Condition

Bound in the publisher's original cloth, with the original, unclipped dust wrapper. Externally, excellent, with a little bumping and a touch of fading to the extremities. Author's inscription to the front endpaper. Dust wrapper is very smart, with light edge wear and the odd chip. A little rubbing to the wrap, with the odd mark. Internally, firmly bound with bright, clean pages.
