Why We Love This

Leigh Fermor, Patrick.The Violins of Saint-Jacques: A Tale of the Antilles.London: John Murray, 1953. Third printing. Dedicated to Lady Diana Cooper. Book is in perfect condition, clipped jacket is bright, with slight edge wear. This is Leigh Fermor's highly sought-after, first and only novel, a feverish, romantic fantasy of French Caribbean decadence, set in 1902. A wonderful example of an accomplished travel writer testing his wings, in a fabulous '50s jacket.
