A Time of Gifts. On foot to Constantinople: from the Hook of Holland to the Middle Danube.
London: John Murray, 1977. - First Edition. Octavo. Bound in publisher's blue cloth with crane in gilt to front board, titles in gilt to spine. Pictorial dust wrapper depicts Fermor striding past ruins and castles into the sunset, continued to spine, blue rear cover with crane in flight. Binding is tight, and the cloth boards remain vivid. The dust wrapper shows well, bright and clean, though rubbed, especially front edges, with small tears at spine ends. An attractive copy of one of the most significant volumes of Fermor's enviable autobiography, in which the eighteen year old Fermor sets out from school to walk to Constantinople, passing through a number of countries including Germany during Hitler's rise to power. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
