London: John Murray, 1977
First edition of the travel book chronicling the beginning of the author’s journey when he was eighteenth years old, on foot across Europe from the Hook of Holland to Constantinople in 1933. This first part takes the reader as far as Hungary, while a second completed volume and a third unfinished (published from drafts) complete the journey. An excellent copy, with very slight wear at the edges. Rare errata is included.
21,5 x 13,2 cm. Good. Item #43
