240 pp, 8vo (8 5/8" H). Map endpapers, b&w photographs, maps. "(R)anges over a wide variety of scenes, history, and great personages. The famous Good Friday processions at Seville, the great Prado museum, the caves of Altamira, the gipsies, the appearance of a land still recovering from the ravages of civil war - all these are subjects for Frank Clune's vivid description. He writes, too, of Spain's great past; of the Christian Reconquest after the period of Moorish domination; of Ferdinand and Isabella, the 'Catholic Sovereigns'; of Magellan and Columbus; of Cervantes and El Greco. But whether he is describing the cool glories of Gothic architecture in medieval times or the hot excitement of a bullfight at the present day, he preserves his happy knack of making the reader share his own sense of curiosity and wonder." Light edge wear to boards, wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, a few scattered tiny foxing marks on front board, very slight bowing to boards. Dust jacket has creasing along top edge, a few tiny to small tears, a few tiny foxing marks, light to moderate edge wear, slight darkening to spine and flap-folds, now protected in mylar sleeve.
