Description: Adapted from the inside flap: "Ben Lucien Burman's early interpretations of life on the Mississippi after the turn of the century caused him to be hailed as 'The New Mark Twain'. In this volume, Mr. Burman returns to the great river, with colourful recollections of the glamorous Mississippi steamboat days that are no more."
Illustrated throughout with Caddy's brilliantly evocative b&w charcoal sketches.
Considering its age and previous life in a public library, the book is in very good condition. The jacket has been protected in library binding and is unclipped (£2.95) and undamaged – except for a crease on the rear. The pages are also in very good condition, having resisted tanning, and are free from foxing – though a number have some minor marks. Being a former library book, the library's ex-libris is present on the front pastedown as well as the remains of other paraphernalia.
A nice copy.
Measures 24 cm × 16 cm (9.6″ × 6.4″). Large 8vo. 192 pp.
