From the author's preface " It is a description of a caravan journey from the East Coast of England to the West Coast of Ireland, and once more I invite my readers to accompany me over the moors and dales, the valleys and mountains ; over the sea and across the bogs to the wild Atlantic coast. To meet and talk with all sorts of people of high and low degree, Lords and Ladies, Circus-riders and Mummers, Tinkers and Horse-stealers, Gypsies and Tramps; to converse with and enjoy their philosophy, their romance, their adventures, their sentiments, and their natural unsophisticated humour. To enjoy the pure air of health ; to view the varied landscape; to inhale the sweet-scented hedgerows; to admire the jewel-winged butterflies and the passing and carolling of birds ". No inscriptions. Green cloth gilt, slightly rubbed.
