About this Item

First Edition of this beautiful A & C Black title. With 100 wonderful plates either in full colour or selenium-tone by Mortimer Menpes and with sketch illustrations on nearly every page of text. 8vo, original bright red cloth decorated in a fine Art Nouveau style in all over designs to the upper cover and spine in gilt and black. With gilt lettering to the spine and upper cover and the gilt and black emblems of each of the Menpes, t.e.g. x, 352, 8 ads. An unusually fine and bright copy, with just a bit of the usual fore-edge spotting, otherwise very fresh and clean and especially well preserved and attractive. An exquisite gem by two of Black's most popular collaborators from their beautiful travel book series. With fine writing and exceptional painting skills the Menpes take us on a world tour rivaling that of Phileas Fogg. The tour begins in England, meanders through Holland, France, Brittany and Normandy then crosses through Switzerland into Italy, with a stop in Sicily before crossing over to Spain. From there the couple go on to visit Morocco, Greece and Turkey before entering the Holy Land and Egypt. Then its down to South Africa then back up to India, Kashmir and Burma. China is next on the tour, which then enters beautiful Japan before finally arriving in Mexico to tour Tehuantepec, a village and Puebla. Bookseller Inventory # 26663
