First edition. Published by Faber and Faber, London in 1945.


The book is in very good condition overall, with some small tears and wear to the edges. The jacket design is by Roland Pym. This book is the first of Lawrence Durrell's three island memoirs  and provides a guide to the landscape and manners of the island of Corfu.


The Daily Telegraph said of the book "Corfu, that Ionian island whose idyllic yet blood-stained history goes back the best part of a thousand years, could not have found a fitter chronicler than Mr Durrell. For he is a poet, with all a poet's sensibility, and a humanist to boot, with a keen eye for character and a scholar's reverence for antiquity."
