Signed 1st Edition of Aaron Hoskins’ account of his travels round the world in the early 20th-C, including Europe, USA, Fiji, Egypt, The Middle East; 16 plate illustrations; Signed and with gift-inscription to front endpaper “To Dr. A. Horne, with every good wish the author presents this book Aaron Hoskin London 25th October 1913” – I would like to think that this is one and the same Dr. Andrew Horne who features in the Lestrygonians chapter in Joyce’s Ulysses – Horne was an Irish doctor but was knighted (in London?) by King Edward in 1913, the same year of Hoskins’ dedication – please note this is a bookseller’s speculation only (!); heavy foxing/tanning to endpapers, medium to prelims and text block, scattered foxing throughout; boards lightly rubbed.
