Notes from a Diary in Asiatic Turkey.
London: Edward Arnold 1898 - First ed. 8vo. pp. xvi, 267; frontis. and 30 photogravure or phototype plates, one other plate, one folding map; occasional minor browning to tissue-guards of plates, previous owner’s inscription and inkstamp to half-title, very good in the original cloth, gilt, a little marked, head of upper joint neatly repaired. Henry Percy, known as Lord Warkworth until 1899, and thereafter known as Earl Percy after his father became the Duke of Northumberland, became a Conservative politician in 1895. That same year, he first visited Turkey, and returned in 1897. He published his experiences of the 1897 in the present work, relating his journey from Constantinople across northern Turkey to Lake Van, and on to Mosul and Aleppo. The work has become uncommon, as has Percy’s subsequent volume The Highlands of Asiatic Turkey (1901). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
