Moscow Excursion
New York: Reynal and Hitchcock. [1934]. First. First American edition. Slight soiling on the boards else fine in very slightly spine-toned about fine dustwrapper. Publisher's complimentary copy with slip laid in (stating the date of publication as August 8, 1934 - the date doesn't otherwise appear in the book), and with a Reynal and Hitchcock editor's card laid in. The very uncommon second book by the author of the Mary Poppins series, a travelogue of Russia. The publisher's blurb indicates that Travers: "did what few tourists do, and what no journalist resident in the Soviet Union who wishes to stay there can do - she brought her intelligence to bear on what she saw going on around her, not what was supposed to be going on." Further: "This is no serious analytical survey by a casual traveler, but a personal document which brings to the reader the heart-break, the humor, and the entertainment found in a Moscow excursion by a gay young woman who is at once civilized and intelligent." An especially nice copy, and very uncommon. .
