      Century, London, 1988.. First Paperback Edition. Paperback. Very Good/N/A. 9780712618854 Century Travellers Series; "Edward Lear's journey to Albania in 1848 had not been planned; it came about through a chance meeting with Sir Stratford Canning, the British Ambassador in Constantinople who obtained the necessary papers for travel through the Ottoman Empire. Starting from Salonica, Lear went north to Shkoder, then south to Corfu, Parga and Arta before turning west again to end his travels at Mount Olympus and the Vale ofTempe. Along the way, he encountered superb scenery and a fascinating and varied cast of characters - Greek dragomen, Turkish pashas, illiterate frontier guards and obstreperous innkeepers; he spent his nights in khans, tussling for space with donkeys, goats and cats, and his days strolling out with sketchbook in hand, dodging packs of hostile dogs (and sometimes the equally hostile local population) in his determination to record the grandeur of the countryside."; other than a light corner-crease to rear cover a perfect copy; 222 pages. .

        La Vie et L'Oeuvre de Jacques Majorelle 1886-1962 Les Orientalistes, Vol. 7 (The Life & Work of Jackues Majorelle) 1886-1962

      ACR 1988 - Written by Felix Marcilhac, ACR Edition, Les Editions de l`Amatueur, First Print. 288 pages, illustrated throughout with photos, drawings, and facsimiles. Page 159 is numbered but blank. (printing error?) Heavy stock paper is used but the rich colors are not done justice with my insufficient photos, sorry. For the book, some dust spotting to the top edges, binding not as tight as new but holding very well for a book of there dimensions, small bit of dust/shelfwear to the bottom corner of the text block. Interior clean and bright but the sewn-in bookmark could use a good pressing. The dust jacket has a light fading to the spine and the top of the spine has some short tears, bit of rub-through at the corner tips. There are also two short tears to the bottom edge in the front. Lastly, previous owner has written in pencil to the inside front flap. An archival Brodart makes it look great! "Jacques Majorelle grew up in France. He was the son of a famous cabinetmaker from Nancy, Louis Majorelle. When he began his travels, he was immediately attracted to the South of Morocco. The sensitivity of his work distinguishes him amongst the Orientalist painters. He sought to understand the subtle nuances of life in the country he loved. Whether painting landscapes from the Atlas or scenes within a casbah, he infused his subjects with poetry and captured the authentic personality of the South." An incredibly scarce and beautiful book that will enhance any library of collection. Additional photos emailed upon request. Additional shipping will be required for overseas post.
