Pakenham, Valerie
New York Random House 1985 0394522567 / 9780394522562 Book Club Edition Hardcover Very Good+ Very Good+ Jacket 
Clean large hardcover book in clean dust jacket. Bright yellow cloth boards with gold lettering on spine. No fraying or wear. Binding is tight, hinges are sound - no cracking. Pages and edges are clean and bright, with clean decorated endpapers - no names, writing or marks. Liberally illustrated with drawings and photographs. 255 pages. Dust jacket is clean, has two short closed edge tears at base of front panel. Enclosed in new archival quality removable mylar cover. An affectionate and ironic portrait of those Edwardian adventurers who set out for the tropics when the Imperial sun was at its zenith--only to find that sometimes the heat was too much for them. Drawing from letters, diaries and memoirs of the period, Valerie Pakenham brings us the lives of these remarkable men and women who passed their days--flamboyantly, desperately and at times degeneratively--with little company but the mongoose and a stiff cup of tea. 025599
