Revised edition. Decorated cloth in original unclipped green dust-wrapper. Endpaper maps, x+101pp., charming b/w illustrations throughout. In excellent condition, near fine and unused. Crisp and clean. Remains of contemporary price-sticker. Humorous drawings and quaint phraseology depict a studiously uncritical portrayal of “abroad” during the inter-war period. The Brush Up series, first published in Rothermere’s Daily Mail, is a fascinating reflection of certain British perspectives at the time.
