  • Thomas Cook’s – Tours of Egypt the Nile, Sudan, Palestine and Syria -1928

    Thomas Cook’s – Tours of Egypt the Nile, Sudan, Palestine and Syria -1928

    We love this 110 page brochure advertising Thomas Cook’s tours in the style of Poirot and Death on the Nile.

    It would take us a week to explain the depth of information, photographs, maps, intricate details of each of the numerous vessels with photos of the cabins, saloons etc. End paper maps and layout of each of the vessels.

    Very good condition albeit some pencil annotations of a planned holiday – luck bastards!

    Comprehensive view of Egypt and Palestine in the 1920’s

  • The Jason Voyage  – the Quest for the Golden Fleece – Tim Severin

    The Jason Voyage – the Quest for the Golden Fleece – Tim Severin

    Published by Guild Publishing, London 1985. Octavo, 263 pages well illustrated and with charts etc. A very good near fine copy.

    13th century BC and Jason sets sail in his galley to find the Golden Fleece. Legend or fact? From Greece across the Aegean through the Dardanelles and Sea of Marmara and the Bosphorus and up along the Black Sea all the way to Colchis were Jason found the “fleece”’ and his bride Medea.

    Tim Severin had already tested the legend of St Brendan who sailed a leather boat from Ireland to America. And repeated the voyages of Sinbad. For Jason he built a twenty-oar galley and repeated the 1,500 mile voyage … a few volunteer oarsmen were required! Superb mytho-archaeology [our word]

    Tim Severin put it all into Jason and proved the possibility

  • The Lost City – By Major Charles Gilson – 1920′s

    The Lost City – By Major Charles Gilson – 1920′s

    Another adventure by Charles Gilson in striking pictorial covers published in the 1920’s. Gilson has been promoted since he wrote “On Secret Service”. Another Voyager favourite.

    Published by “The Boy’s Own Paper”, Bouverie Street, London. Octavo, 378 pages with frontispiece in colour and eight other illustrations.

    The longer title, as usual, gives a clue … “The Lost City … being the Authentic Account by Professor Miles Unthank of the search for the Sarcophagus of Serohis, and the Theft of the Mystic Scarab, formerly in the British Museum”. We love it!

    Collectable … The Lost City
