Travels Through Several Provinces of Spain and Portugal &c.
Printed for the Author and Sold by J. Robson T. Payne Messrs. Cadell et al. London 1799 - First edition. SCARCE. viii, 316pp. The military travels of Croker presented in a series of letters a few years before the Peninsular Wars. The tone is very honest and engaging. In one town the locals decided that it would be fun to throw stones at the troups and only stopped their sport when the use of guns were threatened. Croker writes in detail about the food and wine and is also very observant of the interest the Spanish men pay to the English women that travel with the soldiers. Recently rebound in quarter maroon calf and marbled boards, original endpapers and half-title present. Some occ. light foxing, one page has a close short tear to margin, not affecting text. The pages are remarkably clean and fresh and the volume is very sound. Please contact us for photographs. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
