Title: Give Me the World
Description: London, United Kingdom, The Travel Book Club. 1958, Edition Unstated. Hard Cover with dust jacket, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. This travelogue about the mystery-shrouded Far East is a must-read book. Leila Hadley, a 25-year-old divorce with a plum PR position in Manhattan tossed aside conventionality and shipped out to Hong Kong with her 6-year-old son in tow. Hooking up with characters from scholars and mystics to a quartet of American sailors, she traveled to locales such as Ceylon, Bombay, Bangkok, and Delhi, sailing much of the way on a schooner on which she was a bona fide shipmate. Filled with luxurious prose and so many cultural insights and wild experiences. CONDITION Ocre bds (unworn) pp viii 342. Nice crisp copy with foxed ends and edges, name inside front. DJ has mild wear with stains at rear and toned. Good/Good.
