Daily News, London, 1908 First Edition. Binding: Softcover. Book Condition: Very Good Condition. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. ‘All the following articles have appeared in The Daily News. They are the notes of a vagrom man with a bicycle; notes of things as they appeared to him, and not necessarily as they should have seemed in truth. They were recorded piecemeal, in the ingle nooks of old inns, upon high moors and under hawthorn, with milestones and bridges for seats, by bogs and brooks, in sunshine by the sea, and in bed— while his clothes dried. The flowers (and weeds) of daily journalism spring up in a night, wither in a day, and the place thereof knows them no more. Whether it is ever wise and profitable to dig up the roots and revive them, you must not decide by this crop. The vagrom man has often wished for this book, for the selfish sake of its souvenirs of happy vagrancy ; and the wish of others happening, curiously enough, to coincide with his, the thing is done.’ Contents : The Deep Delight Of Dentdale; The Pass Of Buttertubs; Lakeland In October; Back Thoughts; Cornish Pasty; Awheel In Brittany; A Pass-Storming Trip; Tan Hill Inn; The Portsmouth Road; In Quest Of Spring; A Distressful Country.
