These Little Journeys were issued in 6 parts in 1900 and 6 in 1901. The authors were not all English, as Robert Burns is included. The binding here is labeled 1900 but no doubt it was done much later. In any event it is an unusually attractive volume. Condition of this book: Near fine with light wear at extremities.

All edges clean, neat and free of foxing. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Antiquarian & Rare; Britain/UK; 1900-1920; Biography & Autobiography.
