Product description

The Mediterranean Shore: Travels in Lawrence Durrell Country
Paul Hogarth
Introduction and commentary by Lawrence Durrell
Pavilion Books Limited, London, 1988.
Hardback; 295 x 265 mm; yellow boards with titles in black on spine; 159 pages. Sketch map illustrations on the endpapers. Original unclipped dust jacket. Profusely illustrated.
The book is in very good condition. The binding is sound. There is slight bumping, and some marking of the jacket. The price on the internal flap has been obliterated. There is slight foxing of the edges of the boards, and top edge foxing of the leaves. The recto of the front free endpaper is annotated in black ink: ”11.9.91 To dad wishing you a happy birthday this year and hoping this will inspire your travels & paintings to come Pete & Inge x”. Otherwise the contents are clean and unmarked.
Paul Hogarth (1917–2001) was an English artist and illustrator. He is best known for the cover drawings that he prepared in the 1980s for the Penguin edition of Graham Greene’s books. His 1988 book of paintings and observations on the works and landscapes of Lawrence Durrell is one of which Hogarth himself was especially fond. Following on from his successful study of Graham Greene’s landscape in Graham Greene Country Hogarth stuck with the formula of narrative by both himself and the author along with diary notes and introductions to the books and characters. The illustrations are set off by extracts so that the artist’s vision and the writer’s are juxtaposed. Both Durrell and Hogarth comment on the paintings and a selection of Durrell’s poems is also included and these are accompanied by vignettes from the artist.
