  • 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!

    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!
