The Stream of Pleasure -a Month on the Thames

£50.00

Product description

Like 'Three men in a Boat' the Robins' Pennells' book tells of a relaxing river trip in simple elegant prose, enlightened by the minor adventures, the people met en route and the pubs and hotels at which the authors stayed.   A final chapter by J G Legge provides a practical commentary.  Published in 1891, it is a delight.   The book, bound in pale green cloth with three vertical panels on front, the title and symbol of the publisher contained in the right hand panel.  B/w water colours and many line drawings are lovely.   The fixed front end-paper carries a prize award of Northampton School of Art.  There is some foxing and internal hinges have split (at two points?) between sections of the text block, though the principal hinges are sound.
