Journeys in Gwent (Signed)

£14.99

Product description

Frederick James Hando MBE (1888 – 1970) was a Welsh writer, artist and schoolteacher from Newport who chronicled the history, character and folklore of Monmouthshire (which he also called Gwent), in a series of over 800 articles and several books published between the 1920s and 1960s.

In this book, you will read of visits to little known villages and to un-mapped houses; of legends told, some with gusto, others in hushed awe; of lives lived in spacious Elizabethan days, of lives lived - and lived bravely - in the days of the Terror; of the unmatched beauty of this heavenly land, with its wind-swept hills and flowered vales, of the majesty of its great abbeys, and of the loveliness of its lost little churches.

The book is signed by the author on the half title page. There are numerous drawing by the author.

The book has its dust jacket which is rubbed and has several tears with a small piece missing from the front and a large piece missing from the back. Inside the pages are clean and the binding is tight.
