Title Over the Hills of Ruthenia: Cheap edition.
Publisher London Harold Shaylor
Date 1931
Book ID 38560


Small 8vo., original blue cloth, lettered gilt with attractive decoration in gilt to upper board. 245pp.. A very nice tight and clean copy. Scarce work by Henry Baerlein, prolific writer, often on Eastern Europe, also wrote under the name of Henry Bernard and George Birmingham - “MR. BAERLEIN'S leisurely account of his equally leisurely journey over the hills and dales and through the fields and forests of Ruthenia is a delicate blend of ironic charm and haphazard literary gypsying among the sturdy and almost illiterate peasant folk and villagers of this obscure little country -- a country bent upon making the most of its recently discovered self-determination.”
Price: £30.00
