Patrick Leigh Fermor
Mani - Travels in the Southern Peloponnese.
London: John Murray, 1958.
First UK printing.
Following his intimate involvement with the struggle to liberate Greek islands during the second World War, Leigh Fermor returned to study the history of the Greek language itself.
He explores the Mani area, the bleakest coastline of the Peloponnese, where life in the 50s still stood unchanged since medieval times.
Book is fine and jacket, by John Craxton, has minor loss to spine ends and fading.
