A Traveller's Life (Picador Books)
NEWBY, ERIC,
ISBN: 0330280309
Picador, London, 1983. reprint
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. reprint. Eric Newby's life of travel began with strange adventures in prams, forays into the lush jungles of Harrods with his mother and into the perilous slums of darkest Hammersmith on his way to school. Such beginnings aroused his curiosity about more outlandish places, a wanderlust satisfied equally by travels through the London sewers, by bicycle to Italy and through wildest New York. His book chronicles the whole range of situations into which he has thrown himself with characteristic verve and optimism, and his perception of the incongruous is as sharp when travelling abroad in search of high fashion, as buyer to a chain of department stores, as it is when recalling his reluctant participation in a tiger shoot in India. rear panel blurb Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. 304 pages. a clean secondhand copy, no damage to detail apart from age toning of the page edges.
