Information
First folio printing slipcased hardback of A TIME OF GIFTS by Patrick Leigh Fermor (with illustrations by Daniel Whistler). Published by The Folio Society in 1999. Originally published by John Murray in 1977.

The book is in near fine condition (pictorial cloth boards with silver lettering to spine) with no significant wear, apart from perhaps some slight fading to the lettering. The book is in a very good slipcase that has light scuffing/loss to the paper covering on two corners, nothing too drastic.

In 1933, at the age of 18, Patrick Leigh Fermor set out on an extraordinary journey by foot - from the Hook of Holland to Constantinople. A Time of Gifts is the first volume in a trilogy recounting the trip, and takes the reader with him as far as Hungary. It is a book of compelling glimpses - not only of the events which were curdling Europe at that time, but also of its resplendent domes and monasteries, its great rivers, the sun on the Bavarian snow, the storks and frogs, the hospitable burgomasters who welcomed him, and that world's grandeurs and courtesies. His powers of recollection have astonishing sweep and verve, and the scope is majestic. First published to enormous acclaim, it confirmed Fermor's reputation as the greatest living travel writer, and has, together with its sequel Between the Woods and the Water (the third volume is famously yet to be published), been a perennial seller for 25 years.

292 pages including Illustrations.
