Mountains in the Mist

Product description

The subtitle of this book is "Some Australian Reveries", and the reader is thus forewarned that the contents will be of a spiritual nature. The author states in his introduction that the Australian landscape has been a fertile source of inspiration for his meditations on a wide variety of topics, and the reader is thus invited to follow the writer on a spiritual journey. The book was originally published in 1914.
.
Frank William Boreham OBE (1871–1959) was a Baptist preacher in New Zealand, Australia, and England, one of 10 children. Born in England, he heard the great American preacher Dwight L. Moody during his youth. Later, he met (while in hospital) a Roman Catholic nurse who widened his insight of ecumenism. He became a Baptist preacher after conversion to Christianity while working in London, and his first ministry was at Mosgiel church, Dunedin, New Zealand (1895) where began his prolific writings, initially for the local newspaper. He was subsequently pastor in Hobart, Tasmania, and then in Melbourne at both Armadale and Kew. He continued writing after his (nominal) retirement in 1928. His writings were very popular, and (as evidenced by our book) ran into multiple editions.

Our book is in excellent condition, protected by an almost undamaged (unclipped) dust jacket - there is one small 1 cm tear at the bottom of the front cover, and only minimal signs of age-darkening. The title & author's name are in black italic print on the front, with a monogram design of the author's initials in blue type. Similar details are printed in these 2 colours on the spine. The book itself is bound in bright turquoise cloth, with the title etc in dark red lettering to the spine; there are no signs of wear externally. Inside, the binding is firm and all pages clean and bright. The text is a little variable in density, quite possibly as originally produced, but otherwise this is an excellent copy.
