Letters from Switzerland and Italy, during a late tour.

[Carne (John)]

Letters from Switzerland and Italy, during a late tour.

Description: FIRST EDITION, pp. xii, 472, 8vo, contemporary half calf, spine gilt in compartments, a crest in the lowest, lacking label, good

Publication Details: Henry Colburn, 1834

Notes: The tour begins, unusually, with the party holed up (deliberately) in Thun for the winter. Carne's Letters from the East, 1826, 'brought him into the company of Scott, Southey, Campbell, Lockhart, Jerdan, and other men of letters. His friends rated him more as a story-teller than as a writer, and he often captivated audiences by his tales' (ODNB).
