Tyndale (1855-1943), the English artist best known for his watercolours of landscapes and street scenes, was one of the first illustrators to benefit from developments in colour printing for travel volumes. This handsome volume, exquisitely illustrated, is an excellent example of his work. Heavyweight, so a contribution towards extra postage costs may be requested for overseas delivery.
