Detailed Product Description
London, Richard Bentley and Sons, 1847. 499 pp. Handsome half maroon leather over marbled boards and raised band spine with gilt decoration and titles, marbled end papers. Near Fine condition overall, especially given the age.

The fictional adventures of Mr. Ledbury and his friend Jack Johnson. Includes a small amount of Alpine climbing and crossing passes.

Excerpt from The Adventures of Mr. Ledbury and His Friend Jack Johnson: "Mr. Ledbury was on terms of intimate acquaintance with Jack Johnson, although the two were as different in their dispositions as a bottle of champagne and a tin of Devonshire cream, and they always enjoyed a little conversation when they met, Mr. Ledbury usually commencing by a few mild meteorological observations, which Jack Johnson generally replied to by asking his opinion of things in general, and the Romans in particular - questions, it must be admitted, certainly involving much theory and ingenious speculation."
