Descripción

FIRST EDITION. 8vo., pp. 3-264. Sketch map of the author's journey in West Pakistan and Afghanistan and further sketch map to show the Pakhtun areas. Thirteen b/w photographic illustrations. Original green cloth, sound. Some very slight foxing to page edges, otherwise interior clean. Dust jacket torn at head of spine and top of front, some fraying at the tail. Peter Mayne spent weeks on end with the Pathan of the wild North-West Frontier in the early 1950's to write this book. This is an account of the values and vicissitudes of friendship experienced by eating, talking and resting, man to man, on equal and intimate terms with all sorts of men under all sorts of conditions. He brings a simple-seeing directness to what he writes making everything immediate to the reader. N° de ref. de la librería 10209

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
