Three Letters from the Andes [Signed]
John Murray, London 1991 - First Printing, with drawings and illustrated dust jacket by John Craxton. 8vo: [10],118pp. Signed by the author directly to the front fly leaf. Publisher's blue cloth, spine stamped gilt, jacket priced £10.95. Fine, tight and unread; about Fine jacket (faint smudge to back panel). In 1971, Leigh Fermor accompanied five friends on a remarkable journey into the high Andes of Peru, from Cuzco to Urubamba, on to Puno and Juli on Lake Titicaca, down to Arequipa, and finally back to Lima. The expedition, led by a writer and poet, included a Swiss international skier and jeweler, a social anthropologist from Provence, and a Nottinghamshire farming squire—all seasoned mountaineers. The other two participants—Leigh Fermor and a botany-loving duke—were complete novices. As the group traveled into increasingly remote regions, Leigh Fermor recorded experiences in this series of letters to his wife. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
