What Our Customers Say...

Description

Publishers' Original Binding

Talwin Morris was a prolific book designer and decorative artist working in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, particularly known for his Glasgow Style furniture, metalwork and book designs. Alexander William Kinglake (1809 – 1891) was an English travel writer and historian. His first literary venture was Eothen; or Traces of travel brought home from the East, a very popular work of Eastern travel, apparently first published anonymously, in which he described a journey he made about ten years earlier in Syria, Palestine and Egypt, together with his Eton contemporary Lord Pollington. Elliot Warburton said it evoked "the East itself in vital actual reality" and it was instantly successful. With an introduction by A. T. Quiller-Couch, and a frontispiece of Kinglake.
