LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Robert Hale Limited, London 1960. Illustrated with 14 black & white illustrations. There are some words that live on long after the disappearance of whatever they were first used to describe : in French. la chiourme is an example. The word, thought to be derived from the Greek Keleusma, the name given to the song of the galley crews of antiquity, is still used more than a century after the last galley sailed to sea, as a collective name for the wretched flock of outcasts that successive courts of law have struck off the human register in order to treat them worse than cattle - this is their story. Red cloth covered end boards. Soiled and shelf worn. 224pp. 220 mm x 135 mm.
