With a Camera in Majorca
1907, illustrated with photographs by Mrs R M King
First US edition, hardback , bound in the original decorative cloth with printed titling to spine and upper board. 19 × 13.5cm, xi , 167pp, 1pp ad.
Quite a rare first edition. Margaret D'Este's travels around Majorca, Minorca and Iviza (Ibiza) in 1906, illustrated with a colour photograph frontispiece (Majorcan country girls), and plenty of black & white plates showing the towns, harbours, buildings etc, taken by Mrs R M King (believed to be the author's mother).
A good copy. The spine is tanned and there is a little light fraying to the front joint. The pages are a little tanned and with occasional offsetting where a newspaper article or similar had been placed. A small modern map of Majorca has been taped in at the ffep (which would be easily removed), otherwise the book is free from inscription and the inner binding is secure.
