The "Annie Marble" in Germany

£45.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Before finding fame and fortune with his Hornblower series of novels, author C. S. Forester also wrote about his holiday on the Annie Marble motorboat through the rivers and canals of Germany towards the end of the Weimar period - a clear and simple account of a holiday that C. S. Forester and his wife clearly enjoyed, and yet, at the same time, a snapshot of a moment in the history of a nation that would take a tragic turn in just a few years' time.
1930 original hardback edition with 39 illustrations (b/w photographs) and 2 maps. No dust jacket but transparent protector jacket. Red covers with black lettering on spine. Spine faded due to sunlight exposure. Tanned pages and foxing on 2nd page/edges. Previous owner's name written in pencil on 1st page.
