Journals by the author of Vathek, builder of Fonthill Abbey. An attractive edition of Beckford's journal with introduction, notes by Alexander. Two fold-out maps at back. Illustrated occasionally. VG/VG (Book has minor flaws: some spotting on fore-edge, little note taped with old tape to ffep, previous owner's name written neatly at top corner if ffep, and a discreet owner stamp at bottom of title page; dj, now protected in a plastic sleeve, has light edgewear and a slightly sunned spine).
Rupert Hart-Davis, 1954
hardcover, very good condition, very good dust jacket
