Description: New York: Vanguard, (1957.) dj First US printing. From the dust jacket flap - Eccentricity exists particularly in the English, Dame Edith says in a wry aside, because of 'that peculiar and satisfactory knowledge of infallibility that is the hallmark and birthright of the British nation.' Hermits, sportsmen, quacks, mariners, the indefatigable British travelers, men of learning, men of living, and the ladies, God bless them, here is a glorious gallery of the extremes of human nature. Some are well-known, others have been rescued from obscurity - Index. 376 pp. Very good in a good dust jacket (price-clipped, some rubbing and wear to the dj along the folds and at the ends of the spine).
Price: US$ 24.50 Seller: bookfever.com (Volk & Iiams)
