| AN INLAND VOYAGE
by Robert Louis Stevenson.
While John MacGregor might have started the passion for canoeing across Europe, Stevenson undertook a similar "voyage" in 1877 and he brings a literary skill to his narrative of the adventure which casts new light upon the subject. This book is lucid, brilliant and at times very funny. We recommend it to all canoeists and all lovers of travel. Our edition combines two; the Herbert B. Turner edition published in Boston in 1903 with its very fine typography and the Chatto and Windus edition published in London in 1912 with its pencil sketches and 12 beautiful colour paintings by Noel Cooke. We also include Cooke's introduction in which he revisits many of the places visited by Stevenson and his companion, Sir Walter Grindlay Simpson, BART. First published in 1879. Illustrated with a portrait of Stevenson, 12 pencil sketches and 12 full-colour paintings by Noel Cooke.
