Product description

Grogan was a late Victorian whose early life, which involved being expelled from both school and university, did not recommend him to a potential father-in-law. The monumental journey was undertaken to prove his metal. After two and a half years of travel and innumerable perils, he completed his odyssey . He married Gertrude, his woman and became something of a celebrity in London.
Nelson hardback in pocket book size. Dull red cloth covered boards with black pattern to front and gilt lettering to spine. The DJ is intact but decidedly ragged with defect of top and bottom of the front and a very flimsy front hinge. There is a heavily redacted presentation plate on the reverse of the front cover, also some foxing and grubby. Tanning to ffep and some foxing to first few pages. Two maps on the rear end pages and a few black and white illustrations, and again more tanning and slight foxing. Binding good and no other marks. One of the Nelson Classics series

Welcome to Totnes Oxfam Shop. Our shop is to be found in The Narrows; an historic part of Totnes town and has become a 'must visit' place for locals and visitors alike. Through the generosity of our local community, the volunteers in the shop, and the world-wide selling community of we have raised tens of thousands of pounds for Oxfam, and in the process developed a reputation for maximising the value of our donations; particularly specialist subject books and classical vinyl. We have many years of experience with online shopping, having a small and friendly group of volunteers specialising in this area, who have a reputation for excellent customer service.
