And now Good-bye Rome!

BUTLER, Elizabeth From Sketch Book and Diary

A & C Black, 1909.

First edition. 8vo. Blue cloth, lettered and decorated in gilt, with ruled design in white, to the spine and upper cover. Top edge gilt. Twenty eight colour plates, under captioned tissue guards, plus numerous black and white drawings all by Elizabeth Butler. A very good copy indeed, faint stain to the upper cover. Previous owner's inscription on the front free endpaper.

One of 3000 copies, originally published at 10/-. The author depicts her travels to The West of Ireland, Egypt, The Cape and Italy via diary excerpts and snapshots from her sketchbook.
"It takes two or three days to rid oneself of the idea that that the streets are parading their colours and movements and their endless variety of Oriental types and costumes for your diversion only."

Inman 114.
