Rare edition as signed by author, H.V. Morton. 

 

Published by Methuen & Co., London (1934). A charming companion volume to 'The Heart of London' and 'The Spell of London', consisting of a series of unconventional essays on London after dark. In the opening essay the author says: "I promise not to drag you through that inevitable night on the Thames Embankment, or the equally ancient night in a doss-house. I will try to take you, as little as I must in the well-worn footsteps of other night-errants". 

 

Henry Canova Vollam Morton (known as H. V. Morton), was a journalist and pioneering travel writer from Lancashire. He was best known for his prolific and popular books on London, Great Britain and the Holy Land. He first achieved fame in 1923 when, while working for the Daily Express, he scooped the official Times correspondent during the coverage of the opening of the Tomb of Tutankhamun by Howard Carter in Egypt.

 

The book's leather covers are in great condition for its age and there is minimal shelfwear or damage to the corners and spine.
