On Foot to Constantinople: from the Hook of Holland to the Middle Danube'. John Murray, London 1977. First Edition, first printing - this copy signed by the author on the front endpaper. 8vo. 291pp. With a photographic portrait frontispiece, a small title page vignette and a double-spread map. Top edge lightly spotted and with a small crease to the cloth at the head of the backstrip. A very good copy in handsome non-price-clipped John Craxton dust wrapper, very lightly dust soiled and a little creased and chafed at the head of the spine panel.
