The Silent Traveller in Oxford.

Seller ID: 2058C

London: Methuen, 1945. Second edition, signed and with an inscription by the author (pp. 183). Octavo (22 cm) in tan publisher’s cloth; twenty Oxford sites and scenes in colour. 'The books characteristically bring a fresh 'sideways look' in a peaceful and non-judgemental way to places perhaps unfamiliar at the time to a Chinese national: the author was struck by things the locals might not notice, such as beards, or the fact that the so-called Lion's Haunch on Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh is actually far more like a sleeping elephant' (Wikipedia). Near Fine.

Price: $100.00
