Glimpses of Europe

£24.99

Product description

Published in about 1890 by William Isbister Limited, this is a mix of travel guide and historical stories. It includes 100 illustrations. Each chapter written by a different writer, edited by W C Procter.

Interesting both as a guide to what travel was like 125 or so years ago, but also for the details of the background of the places mentioned.

There is an inscription in the front reading: 'Geoffrey Bostock, Latin exam prize, Xmas 1890, Sydenham House, Leamington Spa'.

There is some wear and rubbing and the binding although still intact is pretty loose with a split along front end papers. But the pages are all sound and it is in good readable condition.
