Newnes, 1959, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good, Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good, First, Illustrated By: Felix Kelly
235 pages., illustrated dustwrapper. Minor rubbing/chipping at the corners of the dustwrapper otherwise in very good condition. "Let it be said at once that this is not a guidebook -- -- -- but if you're one of those who spirit can attune itself to the pageant of the past; whose imagination is fired by the thought of how generations of men, high and low, created their background, then this is your book. It is the story of an expedition to the West Country, where there is scarcely a mile without a story; the purpose of which is to suggest a framework for the traveller's thoughts when he arrives at -- wherever it is.". The dustwrapper refers to an end paper map, which I have been unable to locate! And yet there is no damage to either of the end pages. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Please refer to accompanying picture (s). Illustrator: Felix Kelly. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Genealogy & Local History; Britain; Inventory No: 0205162.
