Item description, condition report, payment options and related products below

First UK edition, third print (second reprint) hardback of FULL CIRCLE, by Michael Palin. Photographs by Basil Pao and published by BBC Books, London, in 1997. Signed & Inscribed by the author on the title page.

The book is in very good condition (clean bright orange boards and silver lettering on spine) with only minor wear to the dust jacket, which is not price clipped (only minor creasing and rubbing to the edges). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no other inscriptions.

Full Circle was published to accompany the ten-part television series produced by Prominent Television and Passepartout Productions for the BBC, first broadcast on BBC 1 in 1997.

"Full Circle could be subtitled Palin's Book of Wonders. As he and his television crew undertake what may be the first-ever circumnavigation of the Pacific Rim, they prove that there is an awful lot of the world Palin hasn't seen. In this, the third and most ambitious of Michael Palin's adventures, he travels for almost a year through the eighteen countries that border the world's largest ocean. It is a voyage of epic proportions, longer and more demanding than anything he's taken on before.

The Pacific Rim is one of the most volatile areas in the world. Not only are economies expanding faster than anywhere else on earth, but the earth itself is in a constant state of flux. Volcanoes mark Palin's journey like stepping stones. He climbs one which has freshly erupted and is still smoking. He is forced to negotiate mountains and plunging gorges, cross glaciers and dodge icebergs. He follows great rivers like the Yangtze and the Amazon to some of the most remote places on earth, and he confronts the notorious Cape Horn and the windswept beaches of western Alaska.

The people Palin meets provide a constant supply of surprises, pleasures and lessons in life. He visits a Gulag camp in Siberia with one of its few remaining survivors, talks to head-hunters in Borneo, eats maggots in Mexico and rustles camels in the deserts of Australia. He's stood up on a date in Adelaide, taken short on the banks of the Amazon, allowed to land a plane at Seattle and sing with the Pacific Fleet choir in Vladivostok.

 

Full Circle is the record of a journey of several lifetimes and of the often colourful, sometimes disgusting, frequently hair-raising, once or twice hysterical but almost always beautiful world that stretches around the Pacific Ocean. Photographer Basil Paro's dazzling colour photographs reflect the staggering diversity of the people and the landscape."

Large format 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. 320 pages. Illustrated with full - page superb color photographs throughout.
