Robert M. Mcbride & Company. G+/NONE. 1931. Hardcover; 5th Printing. Red boards/gld lettering. Spine gld lettering is worn. Normal board usage showing. Rear hinge is splitting giving some shakiness to text but NOTHING is falling apart. Text is quite clean/tight. Lots of b/w photos. Record of a car jouney aroung England meeting lots of different locals. ; 8vo; 317 pages .

From the intro: "This is the record of a motor-car journey round England. Any virtue it may possess, and all its sins, spring from the fact that it was written without deliberation by the roadside, on farmyard walls, in cathedrals, in little churchyards, on the washstands of country inns, and in many another inconvenient place ... A glance at the route followed will prove that this is not a guide-book ... I followed the roads; some of them led me aright and some astray. The first were the most useful; the others were the most interesting."
