Count de Lesdain
De Lesdain has undertaken a journey with his 19 year old bride in 1904-1905 and lasting seventeen months. The publisher John Murray was moved to write in his preface: ‘That a lady of nineteen should have faced and sustained the hardships of travel in a wild and unknown region …. can hardly fail to arouse a feeling of admiration and surprise’.
Frontispiece, 31 photographic plates, and a folding route map. Decorative cloth, top edges gilt. 8vo. xii, 297.
