LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Geoffrey Bles, London - reprint edition, 1945. Hardcover, 8¾" x 5½" (lacks jacket). Previous owner's details inside cover. Spine slightly sun-faded. A sound copy. Book in GOOD condition. Red cloth-bound boards with gold type to black spine label, tinted top edge, photographic portrait [Halliburton] as frontispiece, 29 b&w photographs. This is a travelogue of outstanding difference! Richard Halliburton wrote thousands of letters to his devoted parents during his nearly forty years. His travels carried him around the world, and his frequent letters home constitute a unique autobiography. Finally he sailed from Hong Kong in 1939 in the 'Sea Dragon', and, although a radio message was received three weeks later, nothing further was seen of man or ship. The letters published here were sent from - in this sequence - Europe, USA, Germany, Amsterdam, France, Barcelona, Cairo, Calcutta, Bangkok, Bali, Peking, Manchuria, Kyoto, New York, Athens, Malta, Tunis, Mexico City, Panama, Buenos Aires, Hollywood, Damascus, Bagdad, Persia, Berlin, Moscow, Hong Kong, then silence. It is a world, described here in a characteristic terse style, he found full of wonder and excitement, now changed forever.
