Product description

First UK hardback edition, published by John Murray in 1986. Dust jacket is a little rubbed at the edges and corners, with lots of very light marks/stains on the back. The d/j spine looks lightly sunned. Blue cloth boards with gilt titles are in very good condition, a little rubbed at edges. Page edges have a few small spots but mostly are very good. Front endpapers are a little tanned but the rear endpapers are not. The text pages are all very clean and fresh, in excellent condition.


The acclaimed travel writer's youthful journey - as an 18-year-old - across 1930s Europe by foot began in A Time of Gifts , which covered the author's exacting journey from the Lowlands as far as Hungary. Picking up from the very spot on a bridge across the Danube where his readers last saw him, we travel on with him across the great Hungarian Plain on horseback, and over the Romanian border to Transylvania. The trip was an exploration of a continent which was already showing signs of the holocaust which was to come. Although frequently praised for his lyrical writing, Fermor's account also provides a coherent understanding of the dramatic events then unfolding in Middle Europe. But the delight remains in travelling with him in his picaresque journey past remote castles, mountain villages, monasteries and towering ranges.
