Product description

Through Savage Europe: Being the Narrative of a Journey (Undertaken as Special Correspondent of the “Westminster Gazette”), Throughout the Balkan States and European Russia

Harry de Windt, FRGS

T Fisher Unwin, London, 1907.

Hardback; 160 x 230 mm; dark blue boards with titles in gold on spine and front cover with a pictorial of a Don Cossack in gold on front cover; 300 pages plus 2 unpaginated leaves of advertisements. No dust jacket. Numerous monochrome photographs.

The book is in fair condition. The binding is sound though there is cracking along the gutter at page 193. There is some wear and bumping of the covers with some marks and crinkling. Fore and bottom edges of the leaves irregularly cut. Page end tanning, and some tanning and a little foxing internally. Pencil marks on the front paste-down endpaper, and recto of the front free endpaper annotated in black ink “S M Gael 1911”. Dog ear page 275/276.

The author travels through, and describes, Montenegro, Herzegovina, Bosnia, Servia (Serbia) which occupies about half of the book, Bulgaria, Roumania, and finally Russia. It therefore presents a picture of the Balkans in particular before the two Balkan Wars, World War I, and everything that has happened since then. The numerous photographs of the area and the peoples will also be of interest.
