The Lycian Shore
Freya Stark's travel on the Turkish coast, signed by H A N Barlow, who filmed her in India in 1945
First edition, first printing. Hardback in dustwrapper. 23 × 15.5cm, 204pp.
This book was previously owned by and has been signed by Henry Arthur Northey Barlow (as H.A.N. Barlow), a Colonial Administrator who filmed Freya Stark when she visited Indore Residency (Madhya Pradesh) for a short film entitled "India—A Residency" (see the BFI library). He later became part of the Secretariat in Lusaka in Zambia.
In the early 1950s, following the trail of ancient Persian and Greek traders, Freya Stark set out by boat to explore the Lycian coast in Turkey. She was guided by the traces of Lycia's rich history and cultural heritage. For all those who now follow in her wake, there can be no better, more evocative or knowledgeable guide to this, Turkey's most enchanting coast. Illustrated with black and white photographs.
A good plus copy. The book has some foxing to the page edges and lightly to the text. The inner binding is sound. The dustwrapper is a little rubbed to the edges but has not been price clipped and is now within a protective sleeve.
