Título: THE CARAVAN PILGRIM
Editorial: London: Heath Cranton 1938
Año de publicación: 1938
FIRST EDITION. 8vo., pp. xiii, 3-224. Frontispiece of The Caravan on the Road, and 55 drawings by the Author primarily of Catholic Churches. Original green cloth, faint traces of sticking between dust wrapper and front cover, otherwise, sound. Dust jacket has lost bloom and is chafed on edges, but very attractive with map of journey in England, and drawing of horse-drawn gipsy caravan. Travelling by horse-drawn gypsy wagon, this is Peter Anson's description of his journey with Anthony Rowe from Datchet near London to the north of Scotland and down to Yorkshire. The earlier part of their journey around Southern England has been described by Anthony Rowe in his book, The Brown Caravan, when both men were very much amateurs at what was already becoming a forgotten method of transport. The whole trip took a year with Peter Anson completing a series of drawings of Catholic churches for the University magazine as they travelled. With a Foreword by Compton MacKenzie, this book is a must for any contemplating a life "on the road." N° de ref. de la librería 10045

Descripción de la librería: We specialise in travel, adventure and exploration books published between about 1900 and 1960, loosely referred to as post-imperialist travel writing. Although most books are the first-hand experiences of their authors, we have included books of general interest about a particular area or incident and autobiographies and biographies by and of famous travellers or adventurers. You will also find some books we consider of particular merit outside our somewhat arbitrary date range. Mark Culme-Seymour Proprietor
