Item Number: 40026

London: John Murray, 1986.

First British edition of the author’s second book in the author’s trilogy that began with “A Time of Gifts”. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Leigh Fermor on the title page. Fine in a fine price-clipped dust jacket.A very sharp example.

John Gross wrote that it was not primarily for the "information it contains that his book deserves to be read (though he packs in a great deal), but for its sumptuous coloring, the acuteness of his responses, the loving precision with which he conjures up people and places" (The New York Times).
