Morton, H. V.
"With eighteen illustrations and endpaper map." A 1931 reprint of this 1927 masterpiece of travel writing. Often described as the best introduction to England and the English people, full of great stories of discovery, backed by history and charming vignettes of the life that still exists in parts of England in the 21st century. Morton's fame began with the discovery of Tutenkhamen's tomb in the 1920's. This "motor-car journey round England" was the result of his feeling bad and bored in Jerusalem. Really a good read. Printed on heavy paper. Dark blue cloth with gilt decorations. Methuen & Co. London. 14th edition, was revised on the 9th. Hb, No Dj. USED. $14.00
