First Edition (First Printing).In the winter of 1897-1898 Victorian writer George Gissing made a well-chronicled journey. throughout southern Italy. The result was a book, By the lonian Sea, in which he detailed the influence of ancient Greece on the peninsula and contrasted the glory of Greece and its magnificent cities to the southern Italy of the late nineteenth century. The book was published in 1901 and has since become a classic in travel literature. A hundred years later, award-winning newspaper journalist John Keahey sets off to retrace Gissing's footsteps.

Anbieterinformationen: BookLovers of Bath is based in the rural idyll of Peasedown St. John in Somerset (God¿s Own Country) in the south west of England and actually very nearly in Bath. After 15 years of being “internet only” I have now opened a shop, Fact or Fable, in the premises of our now-closed Post Office. With over 20,000 books in stock and another 5,000 or so in the shop I run an old-fashioned book business with every book listed, graded, picked, packed and posted by my own fair hand.
