Harry Hervey. Where Strange Gods Call Pages Out of the East. NY: The Century Co., 1924, 1st. edition, x, 349 pp. *** This is not a travel book in the obvious sense but a record of personal experiences, narrating the author's quest for Romance; a quest that led over the Blue Road and into far, flowery cities – to Zamboanga, to Singapore, to Rangoon and other towns with gorgeous-sounding names. [from dust jacket] Hervey's writing style is very descriptive in a lyrical way. With illustrated map end papers by George Annand, a frontis., and six (6) full-page illustrations by Christopher Murphy. *** Bound in green cloth boards with small stamped pictorial gilt on the front cover, gilt lettering on the spine. Original color illustrated Dust Jacket (not price clipped) is in a clear protective cover. The covers have very light soil and wear. The jacket is soiled with wear and light chipping on edges, one tear on spine repaired on verso with archival tape. The contents are clean and complete in a good binding. *** 9 inches tall by 6.25 inches. Bookseller Inventory #
