Product description

This book is one of a number of guides to areas of the British Isles by this author. It offers a wealth of interesting information to the visitor, enhanced by many full-page illustrations from a well-known and respected watercolourist, who published a volume of these paintings in the period between the 1st and 2nd editions of the book.

Ascott Robert Hope Moncrieff (1846-1927) was a Scottish writer, who not only produced travel guides to areas of the British Isles and elsewhere - the Pampas & Belgium, for example - but also volumes on myths & legends, and some history.

Louis Burleigh Bruhl (20 July 1861 – 1942) was an English landscape artist, whose work included publicity posters for the Great Western Railway.

Our copy is in excellent general condition, bound in blue cloth with impressed design on front and spine, with title etc in black lettering on a square panel on the front, and in gilt lettering (still bright) on the spine. The exterior shows almost no signs of wear or use - minimal shelf wear to top & tail of spine, minimal bumping of corners, a little foxing to outer edges of the textblock. Inside, the binding is firm with no loose pages; pages bright with very occasional spots of foxing; all 32 full-page colour illustrations present; feps badly browned. Front pastedown has a label at the top L/H corner, showing 'FROM L Burleigh Bruhl' and dated Christmas 1926. The same name, in ink, on the opposite fep top corner, is also dated 1926 - but may be in a different hand. It is presumed that one of these signatures is that of the artist himself.
