Book Description

First edition. Pp xii, 380. Folding map facing page 1, and engravings to text. Original publishers decorated cloth, slightly chipped to head and hinges, but a clean example overall. From the library of William Saint Clair, with his signature to front paste-down, and a pencilled note on the work as follows: William St Clair, Nov 2007 Knowledgeable and thoughtful far beyond the usual travel account with details about the ancient sites and modern conditions not noted elsewhere. William Saint Clair (1937-2021) was a leading supporter of modern Greece, and the author of That Greece Might Still Be Free, amongst many other books. Uncommon on the market, and an evocative association copy.
