This is my new Reginald Farrer book. Is it not a glorious piece of Edwardian whatchamacallit?






The "coloured" plates appear to be exactly that -- black-and-white photos that have been painted. The book contains plenty of Farrer's frolicsome prose. Once I'm off the Maritime Alps, I will dip into this one for a change.

What is the publication date of the book? It's lovely (and yes, glorious!) and I love those coloured plates.

1910-ish. The book is downstairs and I'm not.
