Letters From Three Continents


Book is quite nice save a darker area to the brown embossed cloth at left side of front cover only and wear to tips of top corners. Gilt is still intact on spine and book is very tightly bound with no cracking to hinges, either front or back. Pages are very clean with no foxing. The only fault internally is scant evidence of the front free endpaper having been torn out, but the next blank page is of the same paper, so it's not terribly noticable. The author was a newspaperman who wrote dispatches from all over the world beginning with England and then off to Cairo and Thebes, Mt. Sanai, Arabia and more. Filled with personal impressions. Book measures 5"x7-3/4" and has 350 pages, plus ads at back for additional Appleton books.
