About this Item

First Edition, early printing. 68 full page watercolour illustrations by Ella Du Cane. 8vo, publisher’s original sea blue cloth, pictorially and very attractively decorated on the spine and upper cover in purple, green and white; lettered in gilt on the spine, t.e.g. xi, 195, index, 2 ads pp. A handsome and bright copy, the plates clean and well-preserved, the text bright and clean, very minor mellowing, the blue cloth very attractive, solid and pleasing. A HANDSOME AND PLEASING COPY OF A CORE WORK. Primarily a tour of the Northern Italian Lakes region, this book succeeds in conjuring the endless beauty and variation found in a languid visit. Special attention is placed on Lake Como, Maggiore, and Orta, while Lugano, Lecco, Comacina, and some lesser known lakes are also explored. History, flora, the changes of the season and time of day, are woven into the text to create a satisfying guide for anyone planning to explore the area. Du Cane’s watercolours are marvelous, capturing many misty mornings and muted atmospheric lake scenes. Antique statuary and stately mansions rise above views of lake and mountain. Verdant foliage merges with the water’s edge, and many delightful garden scenes, including azaleas in full bloom on Lago di Como are rendered. Bookseller Inventory # 27537
