A Person From England

Author: MacLean, Rory
Price: $8.00
Publisher Location: London
Publisher: Readers Union - Jonathan Cape
Year Published: 1959
Book Condition: Very Good
Dust Jacket Condition: Poor
Binding: Cloth
Original red cloth, with no edge wear and a bright gilt title on the spine. The dust jacket is about 2/3 present, mounted on a solid paper of nearly the same color, but the top third of both front and back as well as the spine are gone. This is Maclean's highly readable review of notable travelers to Turkestan and Central Asia. As always, he is a delight to read. And he knows the territory well with his fluent Russian and two extended trips to the area. A cheaper book club edition, but clean and tight. With a bibliography.
